Free Radical, creator of Timesplitter, are closing down. Co-founder Ellis was "visibly upset" when he talked to the staff. "[He] told staff how very sorry he was and they'd been doing all they could, working flat-out to either find a publisher or a buyer over the past six months, but no offers were made. There have been several visits to the States, but to no avail." Reps from Codemasters and Monumental Games were at the hotel after the meeting asking for CVs and applications.
