It’s business as usual for Homefront 2 following the IP’s purchase by Crytek.

“Nothing has changed with regards our development of the game, and we look forward to sharing the finished product with players,” Crytek games GM Nick Button-Brown said in a statement.

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said in a statement said Crytek has been a “firm believer” in the Homefront IP since it signed on to develop the sequel.

“Our cooperation with THQ was always positive and we would like to thank them for all their support over the last two years and express our sympathy to those affected by the recent events at the company,” he added.

The first, poorly-received Homefront was developed by Kaos Studios, which was later closed. New developer Crytek UK is the studio once known as Free Radical, which produced the Timesplitters series.

Ohhhh yeah! I actually really enjoyed the original Homefront in a cinematic game type way. But with these guys behind the wheel? I think it will be guaranteed awesomeness!

Have always been a fan of both Crytek and Free Radical, now that they are a combined force I’m pretty excited to see what they come up with.

 

The original Homefront campaign was far to short but was rather enjoyable, The multiplayer is where the game shined personally with its similar to Frontlines gameplay.

I have faith Crytek will stay true to the story and make a marvelous campaign, Im just a little concerned about the multiplayer side of things as it might just turned into a dumbed down version like how Crysis 2 multiplayer was dumbed down from the brilliant Crysis Wars.

 

Homefront was one of those games that I would of given 5.6/10 because I played it in 2011 when it was released… but if it was released in 2005/2006 I may of said it was one of the best games I have ever played. It felt so ridiculously dated at all times. The concept and direction was great, the execution was poor to be kind.
It blows my mind that it was the unreal engine, it did not look like it one bit. I am not a graphics whore, but man there was some clunky design. I feel crytek can fix that issue, and if the campaign is executed correctly. I will love this game.

 

Crytek games aren’t full of content as they focus mainly on graphics

 

nanorazor,

What a stupid, uninformed statement -_-.

You obviously were not around when Crysis 2 was released…

 

I found Homefront fun though short and it also didn’t have an ending, it just kind of stopped…I have no idea if Crytek doing the sequel is good or bad. *shrugs*

 

Please. Homefront was awful across the board. The only thing they nailed was the initial opening sequence and then screwed everything up from there.

If they didn’t force you to walk for 90% of every mission it would have been a 2 hour campaign instead of 3.

 

i enjoyed homefront 1 and am looking forward to homefront 2 now its cryteks baby :)
