Ubisoft today announced that it has signed an agreement with TimeSplitters' Free Radical Design to develop a yet un-titled next-gen & PC action game based on new IP for release in fiscal year 2006-2007.

The game (title to be announced) will be developed for next-generation consoles and the PC, enriching Ubisoft’s catalogue for the next fiscal year and expanding its offering on new consoles. Targeting mature gamers, it will feature difficult strategic choices and moral dilemmas, tapping into both their rational and emotional instincts.

“Ubisoft is looking forward to working closely with Free Radical, renowned for creating beautiful and engaging gameplay in epics such as the TimeSplittersĀ® series,” said Virginie Gretz, director of third-party development for EMEA at Ubisoft. “With this game, we plan to take players to a new level of intensity and create an environment at once terrifying, enthralling and impossible to resist.”

“We are delighted to benefit from Ubisoft’s collaboration on this title and benefit from its strong experience developing and marketing powerful, innovative action titles,” stated Steve Ellis, managing director of Free Radical Design.
