A Homefront sequel may have stumped gamers but we forget some classics had a hard start before becoming hits.

Ironically, I think the reboot of Medal of Honor was pretty good with the sequel being a letdown.

But, this new Homefront looks to be a completely different affair than the run and gun style FPS.

I agree. I liked the reboot more than Warfighter.

I think that's not the case here, because the game is great but it had poor sale numbers, anyway, i really want a sequel for Vanquish.
A new Mercenaries would be cool too.

I don't understand all these things about being "stumped" or "surprised" that Crytek is making a homefront sequel. All of this was announced well over 2, possibly even 3 years ago. Are all these writers like 16 years old and didn't read video game news 3 years ago. It was all over the place, Crytek was making homefront, thq was gonna publish. (Rumored release was 2014 or 15) Thq goes under, Crytek buys the rights to homefront and continues on making it. This is all very old news, and yet, I keep reading these articles about "old of left field comes homefront 2" lol wtf? "Who knew a homefront was coming". Bunch of dummies I tell ya

SolidGear3697d ago

Yes, I remember when Homefront 2 was bought by Crytek a few years ago

Bayonetta was a massive retail flop, which is why Nintendo had to bail out the developer to get the sequel made. Loads of the best games perform really badly at retail - look at System Shock 2 and the original Deus Ex - because too many gamers refuse to put their money where their mouth is, bemoaning the lack of innovative new game ideas but all too happy to shell out a wad of cash for the latest installment in Generic Modern Combat FPS every single year.

"Driver" was a fail? I never realized... All I know is my cousin was in the top 5 on the leaderboards for the PS3 version for a long time... I guess that alone could tell me that the game failed.. He's nowhere near a "professional" gamer to be that high on the leaderboards...

Driver 1 and 2 for the PS1 were classics. Driver 3 and Parallel Lines were disastrous failures. Driver: San Fransisco redeemed the series on the PS3 and Xbox 360
