    I was wondering if the newshounds would by any chance have a connection to see if the homefront servers are ever coming back. One day, without any warning, they went offline. Usually games at least give a warning before they are shutdown.

    It would be a huge help to lots of TA members who are still waiting and hoping for news!!!

    Any chance they will put the ranked matches back up on the server?

    Sounds like a sweet deal.

    I'd like to see something done with a new Full Spectrum Warrior, I liked those games.

    I was hoping to see a better company bought homefront since crytek can't seem to find the server on switch n they ignore everyone's questions on it. Typical

    My hopes for an Aidyn Chronicles sequel is quickly about to die.

    We don't have any industry sources or connections that would be able to answer that question. Your best bet is to go to the official forums and ask the question, or send emails to whatever official support address you can find for Crytek.

    Yes this! I really missed those games I believe that was the tactical FPS that was on PS2 was pretty awesome.

    I am not holding out but maybe we see Frontlines FoW and Nexuiz servers again never got to try them out online.

    Awesome to see Home World will get re-released all PC fans should know about this strategy game.

    Glad that Red Faction and Darksiders found a home I am just a little concerned that a lot of these IP are just names with no foreseeable future in them. I hope I am wrong because there are a few awesome IPs gained by Nordic, only can hope they do the right thing.

    Red Faction survives!... on PC..
    Better than nothing! And you never know, they might be bringing it back to consoles at some point--hopefully with GeoMod, but not sure if that went with the Red Faction IP or with the developer (Volition, which I think is with Koch Media because of Saints Row, but not completely sure).

    Like to see the next Red Faction more like Guerilla than Armageddon and Darksiders 3 more than 1 than 2.

    Never heard of Nordic but judging by what they make and the other titles they've picked up it looks like Red Faction and Darksiders should be their main concern now.
    Let me find peace in my own heart and save me from my enemies.

    Prefer something closer to the first two where I could dig holes in the earth. Although it seems odd that one person has geomod and the other has the IP. Perhaps this is a joint project TBA??

    I really want more from Red Faction; I have soo many fond memories of the first, not so many from the third, less from the second and I was kind of disenchanted by the fourth and never bought it. God speed Nordic Games!

    Not a Homeworld fan but I figured your hopes, like most peoples, would have plummeted.

    This is GEARBOX we're talking about. The "we killed Aliens, Duke Nukem, and loaded Borderlands 2 with those MEMES YOU LOVE SO MUCH. You kids all love the 9gag" Gearbox.

    Gearbox is one of the worst developers this generation, easily.

    Also, Nordic? I've only heard of them for the Painkiller games. And not the good ones; all the garbage like Resurrection, Redemption, and Recurring Evil.

    Oh well.

    Nordic bought uDraw. Someone start digging a corporate grave...
    just because they bought it doesn't mean they will do anything with it, how many companies has microsoft bought just to close them out and eliminate competition?
