Deep Silver has come forth today not only to remind us that Homefront: The Revolution is still alive and kicking, but also to announce the game’s delay until 2016. This is the first we’ve heard of the game in quite some time, which had us believing that the new Homefront was never going to see the light of day. But it looks like that’s all changing now that the mostly-Crytek UK comprised Deep Silver Dambuster Studios has taken over development. This change-up hasn’t caused any extra delay, much to our surprise, which was confirmed in today’s press release.
Game Director Hasit Zala stated, “We are excited that Deep Silver’s acquisition of the Homefront IP and assets from Crytek has allowed development of Homefront: The Revolution to continue with minimum disruption.” Unfortunately, the uninterrupted progress timeline didn’t yield a more specific release date. A re-reveal is likely to take place at this year’s E3 and bring with it the currently lacking information.
2015 started out a very promising year, but that could change due to it slowly losing highly-anticipated AAA titles. Homefront: Revolution‘s move into 2016 comes just days after the announcement of Uncharted 4’s exit from 2015. Fingers crossed that this is the last of the bad news for a while.
