"For Timesplitters 4, with ever spiralling development costs, massive teams and endless crunch we decided on a more radical development strategy.
"In short, the experiment was to implement the infinite monkey theorem. With cloning being a far too expensive option, we spent all of the development budget on buying monkeys on the black market.
"Those seven monkeys are now sat in a room with typewriters and lots of mirrors, and we fully expect Timesplitters 4 to be finished soon. Rumours are that they haven't written any code but just tease the press from time to time. Those damn monkeys.
In the latest issue of OXM, a trusted and anonymous source close to magazine claimed to have seen TimeSplitters 4 running. The report in the magazine further states that TimeSplitters 4 could be in development but "that's no guarantee that it'll be released."
The latest issue carries a text "Trusted OXM sources have claimed that they've seen TimeSplitters 4 running. That's no guarantee that it'll be released - at least one version of Star Wars: Battlefront 3 was cancelled without ever being announced - but it's a promising sign"
"If we do get a proper sequel, we're likely to see the old games appear, too,"
