Deep Silver has revealed that Homefront: The Revolution is still in the works, planned for 2016 instead
After what went on with Crytek UK last year, we were unsure whether we’d see Homefront: The Revolution. After many reports of Crytek not paying staff and the imminent closure of the company’s UK arm, Deep Silver swooped in to save the day, renaming Crytek UK to Deep Silver Dambuster Studios. Development on the game was set to continue, but its rocky 2015 release date was fairly ambitious after reports that work on the game had stopped during the studio’s financial difficulties.
Now Deep Silver has updated us on the situation saying that the post-apocalyptic open world shoooter, Homefront: The Revolution is still in development but will be released in 2016 not 2015 like first revealed.
Deep Silver’s acquisition of the studio also included the rights to the Homefront franchise, as well as all work on Homefront: The Revolution created, though we’re unsure what progress has been made so far.
“We are excited that Deep Silver’s acquisition of the Homefront IP and assets from Crytek has allowed development of Homefront: The Revolution to continue with minimum disruption,” Deep Silver Dambuster boss Hasit Zala said. “The team here believes we are working on something truly special.”
“Dambuster Studios are an extraordinarily talented group,” added Deep Silver boss Dr. Klemens Kundratitz. “We are giving the team every opportunity to turn Homefront: The Revolution into a best-selling title, and have set a 2016 release date to provide them the time they need to achieve this. You can expect to hear more about the game later this year.”
