Homefront: The Revolution Delayed Till Next Year
Originally thought to release sometime this year, Homefront: The Revolution has been pushed back to release in 2016 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
“Dambuster Studios are an extraordinarily talented group,” said Deep Silver CEO Dr. Klemens Kundratitz.
“We are giving the team every opportunity to turn Homefront: The Revolution into a best-selling title, and have set a 2016 release date to provide them the time they need to achieve this. You can expect to hear more about the game later this year.”
The upcoming open-world first-person shooter is set in an alternate reality United States that has been occupied by North Korean military forces for four years. Players will head a resistance movement utilizing guerrilla warfare tactics to battle the “superior” North Korean army.
A deep single-player campaign has been confirmed for the game, as well as a four-player online cooperative mode.
The first Homefront was published by THQ in 2011, and was received mildly. The game sold over 1 million copies and shipped more than 2.4 million units. THQ then later announced bankruptcy, after which the rights to the Homefront IP were purchased by Crysis developer Crytek for $544,000.
The rights however, were later sold to Deep Silver, making Homefront: The Revolution under the hands of new developer Dambuster Studios.
