Free Radical Design has been resurrected
Embracer Group's annual financial report reveals that Free Radical Design is starting up again, reformed by the original founders.
The resurrected studio is already working on its first project: A brand-new TimeSplitters game. It will be published by Deep Silver, which is also owned by Embracer. Free Radical Design was originally founded in 1999 by part of the team behind GoldenEye 007, and they made three TimeSplitters games between 2000 and 2005.
Radical dudes: “We are happy to announce the formation of a new studio, Free Radical Design, based in Nottingham, UK,” says the report. It will operate as a subsidiary of Deep Silver.
Cult classic: Embracer Group has built up an impressive portfolio of game companies over the last few years, often picking up and reviving abandoned intellectual property with a loyal following, as well as world-class studios like Gearbox.
