Homefront Sequel Announced
Despite lackluster reviews from critics, Homefront will be earning a sequel from Crytek, the developer of popular titles such as Far Cry, The Crysis series and the upcoming Kinect title, Ryse.
Crytek will be taking over development from previous developer Kaos Studios and will utilize the latest in CryEngine technology to run the game.
"We see Homefront as a really strong universe that has a lot of potential and that has been expertly created and marketed by THQ,” said Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli. Yeril also claimed that they have been given a large amount of creative freedom and aim to bring the oppressive, dystopian future to gamers “in a new and innovative way.”
This sequel is scheduled to launch for major consoles and PC during THQ's 2014 fiscal year. (Anytime from April 2013 to March 2014.)
