The ragtag team of fans constructing Timesplitters Rewind is poised to start development on a PlayStation 4 version of the game, project lead Michael Hubicka told Gaming Blend. The move is preemptive, as Crytek has yet to approve the port:

"We're actually going to go ahead and start development [of Timesplitters Rewind] on PlayStation 4," Hubicka said. "We're pretty confident Crytek's going to say go ahead and do it. But we don't want them saying go ahead and do it when we're caught with our pants down and we're like halfway through development, and [then] start something for the PlayStation 4."

Crytek has approved the game's PC incarnation, which was announced back in March. Alpha testing for the PC version is slated to begin sometime between the end of this year and late 2014, according to a post on the game's official blog. The development team is also investigating the possibility of cross-platform play between PC and PS4 versions, should Crytek's legal department sign off on the console port.
