Another developer bites the dust. This time it was the developer of the PlayStation 3 exclusive Haze known as Free Radical. They also brought us the “Time Splitters” franchise.
Sources claim that the poor reception of Haze and an unsuccessful contract with LucasArts (for Battlefront III) dealt critical blows to the company. I couldn’t imagine a worse time to be losing your job. A week before Christmas? That’s just cruel.
So this means no TimeSplitter 4 for those of you who were looking forward to it. I’ve never put much time into that franchise, so I can’t say much. Haze? I spent time with the demo and I wasn’t too impressed.
