I am not very sure but I had earlier read somewhere that before Shakespear there was no future tense. It is said that life in the era was tough and hope for future was either non-existent or slim. People didn't dwell on it.

No. He has written past tense words like holped/holpen (s) and helped (w) in his play. He also has written presence tense words in his play.
