THQ announced today as part of their financial call that Homefront has shipped 2.6 millions to date, most of which went out during the fourth quarter. They attributed Homefront's success to being a "quality game", a highly successful marketing campaign, and its competitive multiplayer.
According to THQ, Homefront was also rated the number one game on Xbox 360 and the number three game on the PlayStation 3 in March. They acknowledged the criticism of the game's short single player, but combatted the comments saying that tens of thousands of players are still playing multiplayer daily.
THQ also mentioned that they plan to release a 32-player multiplayer demo for Homefront as well as DLC over the next six months. What's interesting about the news is how THQ's ideals have switched when it comes to Homefront.
At first, they put heavy marketing in to the single player campaign and now, to draw more people in, they're releasing a multiplayer demo. This type of marketing strategy hasn't really been seen before, so it will be neat to see how THQ's efforts pay off.
