Homefront

Homefront had some problems. Some of you probably think that's putting it lightly. The game rode a wave of hype into stores earlier this year, but the end product from THQ's now-defunct Kaos Studios was a certifiable mess. The publisher has invested in Homefront as a franchise, however, which means a sequel has always been on the horizon. With Kaos gone, THQ has now turned to Crytek for the follow-up.

The news was confirmed this morning, though it's going to be some time before we see how occupied America is faring in the wake of the resistance's victory at the end of the first game. The press release notes that the Homefront sequel is currently targeted for a 2014 console and PC release.

Crytek is certainly a solid choice, and the team there clearly feels there are a lot of possibilities to explore in Homefront's basic Red Dawn-inspired story setup. "We see Homefront as a really strong universe that has a lot of potential and that has been expertly created and marketed by THQ," CEO Cevat Yerli said in a statement.

"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."
