Good news, Homefront: The Revolution isn’t dead!
Homefront: The Revolution hasn’t become “vapourware”, Deep Silver has promised today.
“Sometimes we get questions from fans if it’s going to be another Prey 2 or Duke Nukem Forever. But rest assured that the team at Dambuster is still working hard on the game and it’s not going to be vapourware,” confirmed Dambuster Studios community manager Maurice Tan.
Homefront: The Revolution has had a troubled development cycle, initially starting life at Crytek UK with THQ. Following the closure of THQ, Crytek purchased the IP rights outright and continued development on its own.
That wasn’t the end though, Crytek entered into financial problems and was forced to sell the IP to Deep Silver – along with the Crytek UK (previously Timesplitters developer Free Radical) and renamed the studio Dambuster.
At the time, Deep Silver reaffirmed its confidence in the game, stating: “[Koch] strongly believes in the potential of Homefront: The Revolution and trust in the new team to continue the path we have been walking in the last years.”
Homefront is still scheduled to launch in 2015
