Homefront: The Revolution, the shooter reboot with the rather troubled past, will be released next year, publisherannounced yesterday.
Originally revealed as far back as 2011, the fate of the game was thrown into doubt when THQ filed for bankruptcy in 2012. Thepicked up the rights. Good! Then Crytek got into serious and a number of employees including game director Hasit Zala left the company. Bad.
Luckily Koch Media, parent company of publisher Deep Silver wasto scoop up the rights to the game. They moved the development of the game across to the new Deep Silver Dambuster studio in Nottingham, with several former members of Crytek UK joining the team. Phew. Now here we are, with Zala back at the helm and the game apparently back on track.
“Dambuster Studios are an extraordinarily talented group,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver. “We are giving the team every opportunity to turn Homefront: The Revolution into a best-selling title, and have set a 2016 release date to provide them the time they need to achieve this. You can expect to hear more about the game later this year.”
Homefront: The Revolution also has a [url=
