Deep Silver has announced that Homefront: The Revolution
is now set to release for the Xbox One in 2016. The game is being developed by Deep Silver's Dambuster Studios, after the rights to the franchise were acquired
from Crytek last year.
Dambuster and development of The Revolution
are led by Hasit Zala, who had this to say:
We are excited that Deep Silver’s acquisition of the Homefront IP and assets from Crytek has allowed development of Homefront: The Revolution to continue with minimum disruption. The team here believes we are working on something truly special.The Revolution
's delay is not necessarily a surprising one. With Crytek's financial difficulties last year, the future of the game sat in jeopardy for a period of time, before Deep Silver acquired the rights. A majority of Dambuster's team are veterans of Crytek UK (formerly Free Radical Design), including Zala, who was The Revolution
's director back when Crytek was developing the game.
With the game's release now set for 2016, players will have to wait a little longer to jump into Homefront: The Revolution
. More information on the game is promised for later this year.
