Homefront: The Revolution was on our Big List of 2015 PC Games, but with a sense of uncertainty due to the significant amounts of unrest the title has gone through to date. Today, new publisher Deep Silver has popped up to say it’s still being made.
Originally in development by Crytek UK in Nottingham (formerly Free Radical,) Homefront: The Revolution fell victim to Crytek’s 2014 financial problems (the ones they refused to actually acknowledge at first.) Crytek UK and the Homefront IP were ultimately flogged off to Deep Silver.
The Nottingham studio is still working on the game, and has been renamed Dambuster Studios. Deep Silver is for some reason characterising this as a “new” studio in their press release, even though it’s the same one they bought in July last year.
Anyway, the pertinent statement relating to the game’s continued development is this one: “Development on Homefront: The Revolution continues at full speed, with the game now scheduled for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Mac, as well as Windows and Linux PC in 2016.”
