TimeSplitters PS2 PlayStation

Free Radical Design's seminal shooter TimeSplitters looks like it's coming to PS5 and PS4, likely as part of the next phase of PS Plus Premium's classics push. Overnight, ratings for modern platforms appeared on the Taiwanese ratings board, which is good news for fans of the now-defunct developer.

Spotted by the ever-watchful Gematsu, Koch Media is listed as the associated company, which makes sense as the current IP holder. While a launch date has yet to be approved, TimeSplitters has been rated PG-15 for violence and inappropriate language, which also checks out.

Koch Media picked up the TimeSplitters IP in 2018, along with the studio responsible for the early multiplayer hit Free Radical Design. Koch Media would ultimately join Embracer Group (as Plaion), and Free Radical Design would be closed ahead of Christmas 2023, caught up in its parent company collapse.
