Homefront 2 announced; Crytek developing

THQ has announced that Crytek’s Nottingham-based UK studio is working on the sequel to Homefront which is due in the 2014 financial year – so that’s plenty of time to make a truly fantastic game.

The 2014 financial year could mean anytime from April 2013 to March 2014 and is due on PC and “unspecified” consoles…

“With Crytek’s industry leading technology and legendary experience in the FPS genre, we’re supremely confident that the next Homefront will deliver that AAA-quality experience that players demand,” THQ boss Danny Bilson said.

“We see Homefront as a really strong universe that has a lot of potential and that has been expertly created and marketed by THQ,” said Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli.

“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.”
