In the wake of THQ’s fall, Crytek has emerged as the new owner of the Homefront IP, and says the new game, Homefront 2, will “excite and amaze” gamers.
Crytek CEO, Cevat Yerli, said:
Since we first reached an agreement to develop Homefront 2, we’ve been firm believers in the IP and its potential to excite and amaze players. 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.
Nick Button-Brown, general manager of Games at Crytek, added:
From day one, the Homefront 2 team has been committed to creating a game that takes the series to new heights and features the level of quality and innovation associated with Crytek.
Nothing has changed with regards our development of the game, and we look forward to sharing the finished product with players.
There has been no news concerning when the new game will be released, however this news sure gets a shooter fan like myself excited. No pawn intended.
