According to THQ, Homefront, the FPS about a North Korean invasion of the US, has sold over a million copies worldwide since it came out on March 15. The game shipped over 2.4 million units, so there's still a ways to go, but a million-selling game can hardly be called anything but a success.
“We are very pleased with strong worldwide shipments and sell-through for Homefront, and we continue to fulfill new retail orders for the game across the globe,” said Brian Farrell, THQ President and CEO. “Homefront is clearly resonating with gamers and we are certainly pleased with our initial sales results.”
Homefront's sales are encouraging for a few reasons. First, because a "core" game with good sales will hopefully encourage THQ to continue making more "serious" games for the hardcore. And secondly, because this could mean a sequel.
If you'd watched this week's Feedback, you'd know that I love Homefront like the Kim Jong-Il loves Hennessy, and I'm praying that a sequel will expand the game's loopy, over-the-edge hysterics across the pacific and allow gamers to travel into North Korea itself! Can you imagine the kind of levels one could create in Pyongyang's Ryugyong Hotel?
What do you guys think about Homefront?
