Even after working in this industry for over a decade there’s still some stuff out there that can pleasantly surprise you and developer Crytek working on Homefront 2 is definitely one of them. Remember Homefront? No? It’s ok. The game was a rather forgetful one that really couldn’t capitalize on its premise. THQ for some reason was really gung ho behind this franchise and even went as far as saying that their aim with this series was to dethrone the Call of Duty series.
Who will invade what in the sequel?
While the world including us quite literally laughed out loud, it turns out THQ might have the last laugh after all as developer Crytek is a studio that’s known to churn out real quality stuff like Far Cry and in more recent times, the Crysis series. Could this series actually give Activision’s juggernaut a run for its money? We highly doubt it but that doesn’t mean it’ll go down without a fight.
This yet to be named Homefront game will be out sometime in 2014 for consoles as well as the PC. Thanks to Gameinformer for the heads up.
