This is great news! Hopefully Timesplitters work can now continue and their next game will be much improved from the very average Haze.

I wonder what IPs were included in the deal? Time Splitters with Crysis graphics? And what about all that lovely footage knocking around on YouTube with the Star Wars theme that FRD were working on for LucasArts? Hopefully that'll surface again one day because it looked really good.
