TimeSplitters has recently been rated in Taiwan for both PS4 and PS5, sparking rumors of a potential release on PS Plus in the near future. The two versions of the game were spotted on the Taiwanese ratings board website, with Koch Media, now known as Plaion under Embracer, listed as the associated company. Embracer acquired the TimeSplitters rights in 2018.

It is important to note that a new game in the TimeSplitters series was cancelled last year, leading to the shutdown of studio Free Radical Design. This suggests that the recent rating is likely for the original PS2 version of the game, hinting at a possible addition to the PS Plus lineup. However, no specific dates have been provided in the listing.

The original TimeSplitters game was first released in 2000 alongside the launch of the PS2, followed by two sequels in 2002 and 2005. Free Radical Design, the studio behind TimeSplitters, was made up of developers from Rare’s GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark, giving the series a strong pedigree.

Despite the cancellation of the new TimeSplitters game, leaked artwork and gameplay footage surfaced online after the studio’s closure. The footage showcased five minutes of gameplay with elements reminiscent of Fortnite, generating interest among fans of the series.

Interestingly, a similar leak occurred in May involving the PS2 game Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which was discovered on the PlayStation Store prior to its inclusion in the PS Plus lineup. This pattern of leaks and ratings often indicates upcoming additions to the PS Plus catalog, further fueling speculation about the potential release of TimeSplitters on the platform.

Overall, while fans eagerly await official confirmation and details regarding the arrival of TimeSplitters on PS Plus, the recent rating in Taiwan has certainly reignited interest in the beloved franchise. Stay tuned for more updates as the situation develops.
