Crytek: Homefront IP Was 'A Steal'

David Scammell: ''Paying $544,000 to acquire the rights to Homefront was "a steal", Crytek producer Michael Read has told VideoGamer.com, before suggesting that other Crytek studios could contribute to the development of the upcoming sequel alongside Crytek UK.'' (Crytek, Homefront, Michael Read, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Agreed. Game has lots of potential, and it had great sales. For that price they are guaranteed to make their money back and give it the treatment it deserved.

The problem for me is that after the first game the name has no value for me. If I saw a new Homefront trailer I would probably dismiss it because of the name alone despite who was making it. It is an obstacle that is going to be difficult to overcome.
KrystofKage  +   570d ago
I agree, but it's also been done. Killzone 2 and Red Dead Redemption are good examples.

Wasn't Homefront a very generic shooter or something?
IIC0mPLeXII  +   570d ago
You got the jist of it. Pretty much your garden variety shooter.

Whyyy can't they just work on timesplitters instead!!?? they'd rather work on this generic military shooter bullcrap

The game itself was but the premise is good just failed execution.

It was one of the absolute worst games I've ever played.

Dude, Killzone 3 was awesome. It had amazing graphics, sound and actually a very compelling story.

AKA COD without all the hype and advertisements

You're wrong it did get a lot of publicity before it came out with ads on Tv and articles all over the interweb. Homefront was intended to be a mixture of call of duty gun play with battlefield type maps however the public didn't buy into it too much after playing the beta.

HF 1 was zzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Do something to blow me away with HF without it just looking pretty.
sypher  +   570d ago
Get paid millions by THQ to develop it. THQ go bankrupt and you buy that work for half a million. Yep that's a steal :)
Blank  +   570d ago
Dammnnnn! Thats more than a steal! Crytek will see nothing but profit from this!
ThichQuangDuck  +   570d ago
But really somebody make Freedom Fighters 2 Next Generation
modesign  +   570d ago
544k is overvalued for that franchise

I can see Crytek tweaking HF to compete with BF4 easily if they wanted too.

Damn I can't wait for BF4. I just hope they make the campaign better though
Rampaged Death  +   570d ago
I said the exact thing. CryTek have the quality to make this franchise a success.

Already knew homefront 2 was coming a long time ago and this game will look good on the wii u
