TimeSplitters 4 is not in development. That’s been made clear.

But Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli still wants to hear how many TimeSplitters fans are out there, and so he’s put out a call on Twitter. In response, a large group of fans got together on Facebook in an attempt to beg the German studio to bring back subsidiary Free Radical’s first-person shooter franchise.

Fan Josh Smith even wrote a poem. He says it’s based on a love poem by Robert Burns, and he says he sent it to Yerli, who responded saying he liked it.

Here’s the poem:

O my Banana’s like a yellow, yellow banana

Newly sprung, in Siberia;

My love for bananas is like Graeme Norgate’s melodie

Oh so sweetly played, on Aztec Ruins Interior.

My bonnie lass – Ample Sally,

So deep in love, am I;

And I will love Timesplitters, too, my dear,

Till my bananas have gone dry:

Till my bananas are dry, my dear,

And the Snowman has melt wi’ the sun;

I will love Timesplitters still, my dear,

While the Shoal shall attempt to run.

Please do be fair, my Love,

For the Gingerbread man, he cries;

And I cry too, my Love,

For Mr. Socky to survive.

Lovely. Is this enough to convince you, Crytek?
