Haze turned out bad because they were grappling with the technology of the ps3.
If they did a timesplitters with a team fortress inspired mode then they would smash it, If you asked gamers now what they thought the hottest IP that Crytech own is, i think you'd get some really strong answers, it has strong brand loyalty.
Surely, this is the time to explore IP, Consoles have reached a great installed base, technology is a little static, Haze is proof that launching with a new age of consoles with the most advanced tech you can muster isnt the smartest business move.
Crytech if you cant think how to make money out of the timesplitters IP , without endless facebook campaigns and articles on gaming sites then i (almost) give up,its a brilliant IP , i cant see the Uncharted card game working but i can envisage a timesplitters card game on tablets /vita/Wii u with those cheeky monkey faces popping up .
OK so how about this, perhaps even as something of a loss leader if you dont think (doh) its going to sell , do a timesplltters 2 HD with a little remix mode for the Vita/wii u/Ps3/PC/360 and have a little dabble with the dev kits fot the new consoles
And another thing if your not going to do Timesplitters why the hell did you buy Free Radical, Perhaps Disney should just do Indiana Jones and ignore star wars, cmon you bleedin donkeys, get on with it
Hey its Martin A , not Martina by the way, cheers
