Crytek Set to Develop the Next Homefront!

by on September 20, 2011

Your eyes do not deceive you! THQ  have deemed Homefront enough of a success to give you a sequel, but this time FPS veterans Crytek will be behind the helm. This can only be a step up for series and it will be interesting to see where the team behind Crysis take the series.

“Selecting Crytek to take Homefront forward underscores our strategy of working with the industry’s best talent,” said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. “Homefront‘s unique setting and storyline captivated gamers the world over. With Crytek’s industry leading technology and legendary experience in the FPS genre, we’re supremely confident that the next Homefront will deliver that AAA-quality experience that players demand.”

 “We see Homefront as a really strong universe that has a lot of potential and that has been expertly created and marketed by THQ,” said Cevat Yerli, Founder, CEO and President of Crytek. “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.”

So there you have it, straight from the horses mouth. Do you think this is the greatest union since sliced bread or is it doomed to mediocrity? Let us know.
