Crytek UK to Develop Next Homefront Title

THQ have announced today that Crytek will be taking over the development of the Homefront sequel following the closure of Kaos Studios earlier this year. With development to be headed up by Nottingham based Crytek UK, the shift in developer will see the next Homefront title powered by CryEngine 3.  Founder, CEO and President of Crytek, Cevat Yerli claimed: “We see Homefront as a really strong universe that has a lot of potential and that has been expertly created and marketed by THQ.

“We believe that bringing our level of quality, creativity and production values to the next Homefront title, creates an opportunity for both THQ and Crytek to deliver a truly blockbuster game.  It’s really important to us that THQ has the faith in giving us a lot of creative freedom over one of its most important properties to allow us to bring the Homefront world to life in a new and innovative way.”

It was with a sense of irony that Crytek’s own baby, Crysis 2 went up against Homefront when both titles were released within weeks of each other, with the Crytek shooter going on to dislodge Homefront from the top of the charts.  THQ have claimed that they expect the next Homefront title to be released sometime during its fiscal year 2014 on both console and PC platforms.
