Homefront 2 Still Happening

By Dog of Thunder, 5 years ago
Yesterday, we learned that THQ was closing Kaos studios and moving development of the Homefront franchise to THQ Montreal. Today, THQ boss Danny Bilson confirms that the publisher has "interesting plans for the franchise going forward." We will see a Homefront sequel sooner, rather then later, as THQ Montreal has begun work on Homefront 2. Danny Bilson continued and talked about the success of Homefront and what it means for THQ to move on:

"Everything we learned from [the original] you'll see executed in other games going forward, and including that franchise going forward. We'll have some really interesting announcements in the future about the future of that brand. The issues we had on Homefront we'll never have again. And yet, I absolutely love that brand and want to continue to make it great."
Homefront had a million-dollar plus marketing campagin, a score of 70 on Metacritic and a 3.5 Community Rating here at TrueAchievements. With all of that, THQ is fully committed to developing the franchise further and expanding on what they started with the first Homefront. Good luck, THQ Montreal, you are going to need it.
