Having shut down Kaos Studios, the folks behind the original Homefront, THQ today announced that the next title in the franchise will be developed by multi-award winning FPS veterans Crytek.
“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 Cevat Yerli, Founder, CEO and President of Crytek. “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.”
The yet-to-be-named sequel is scheduled for release in THQ’s fiscal year of 2014 and will be released on both consoles and PC platforms.
