Several weeks after it entered bankruptcy administration and laid off a reported 140 staffers, UK-based studio Free Radical Design has been acquired by independent German developer Crytek. Free Radical was founded in 1999 by several former Rare employees, and is best known for its long-running TimeSplitters first-person shooter series. It is unclear if the in-development TimeSplitters 4 will be completed under the auspices of Crytek.
