This surprise announcement from THQ that the games developer Crytek will be producing a sequel to the hugely successful Homefront, should really be no surprise at all considering the success of the first person shooter game. The only difference will be that there will be no involvement from Kaos Studios, because THQ closed the division down. However, according to the plan, the new game will be out on the shelves of the retail outlets towards the end of 2013!
According to the Crytek founder Cevat Yerli;
‘We see Homefront as a really strong universe that has a lot of potential and that has been expertly created and marketed by THQ,’
He finished off by saying;
‘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.’
