Troubled franchise returns in a startling form.
Many may remember 'Homefront,' THQ's attempt to enter the FPS realm now occupied by 'Call of Duty,' ' Battlefield' and 'Titanfall.' When THQ went bust, that IP was gobbled up by Crytek. Today, Crytek and Deep Silver announced 'Homefront: The Revolution,' an openworld FPS set in a Philadelphia that serves as a part of an occupied United States. Development is being handled by Crytek UK, the studio which was formerly Free Radical, and includes (for now) a four-player co-op mode.
From Crytek, "The United States of America is occupied, but not defeated. Launch the second American Revolution from the birthplace of Liberty itself: Philadelphia."
More details are expected at E3 with the game shooting for a 2015 release.
