Crytek Speaks About Homefront Aquisition

The dust is settling from yesterday's major acquisitions of THQs bankruptcy. Most of the major IPs have been grabbed and today Crytek, purchaser of the Homefront license has released a statement regarding the future of the homefront series. (Crytek, Homefront: The Revolution, Industry, PC, PS3, THQ, Xbox 360)

Personally I think its great they picked it up--just hope they do story justice. This generation we have seen several attempts at Battlefield style gameplay and think Crytek could very well make Homefront 2 the forerunner of competition.

Crytek does know how to do shooters as every Crysis has solid gunplay no matter if you liked the design choices or not. They've teased vehicles here and there (tank level in original Crysis was probably best) and they definitely know how to do large levels (again, original Crysis). If they can put it all together though I can see myself having a blast.

Plus they've already been working on this for a while. Best thing though, it should be a next gen title so will look so nice (as was planned for '14 last I heard) and probably allow for some intense, higher player count fights (assuming around 64+ as next gen should allow consoles for PC player count at very least--going by BF3 standards).

Crysis 3 looks much better than 2 (which I still enjoyed) and can't wait to see what they're doing with Homefront 2. Cryengine really is insane and just think what another year will make it capable of (for consoles especially).

Crysis 1's multiplayer was very much Battlefield-esque. The maps were HUGE, there were tons of vehicles (ground and air) with territory control game modes.

It was flawed but fun. I'd love to see Crytek make another large-scale multiplayer game.

I didn't know that, at the time was in a multiplayer slump and never tried it. Even better news though that they've had more experience than I knew about.

Right now the Battlefield series doesn't have any real competition, on consoles. Maybe Crytek can make something good with Homefront 2.

Homefront had HUGE potential. Flesh it out to 15 or 20 hours and you can tell an AMAZING story and also compete with the big boys. Hope they do a great job like I know they can!

Homefront is probably in my top 3 worst games I've played this entire generation. The 3 hour campaign felt like it took 30 hours to finish. Hopefully the sequel isn't as terrible.

Well, it'll probably be nothing like the first. New engine, new dev team. Sounds like it shall be totally different.

I agree about the campaign. It had so much potential but let me down immensely. The multiplayer saved it for me. It was a lot of fun when it wasn't lagging. It was like call of duty meets battlefield when you think about it.
Didn't play the first. But if Crytek is making the sequel there are two things you can count on. Insane graphics and an engaging story. Might put Homefront in my gamefly queue.

Crytek get paid millions by THQ to develop Homefront 2. THQ goes belly up and Crytek buy Homefront 2 for 540k. That is one hell of a deal :D
