Steve Bitto posted a article in Industry NewsAccording to Kotaku, publisher Deep Silver has acquired the rights to the Homefront franchise from Crytek and will be taking over development of Homefront: The Revolution. They will be transferring Crytek UK employees to a new studio called Dambuster Studios to continue work on the game. This acquisition comes as no surprise after reports surfaced that there were serious financial troubles at Crytek UK. In fact, development on the upcoming Homefront title had come to a complete halt when employees stopped coming to work all together. While this is promising news for those anticipating Homefront: The Revolution, the future of other Crytek franchises and Crytek in general remain uncertain. We wish the best for those at Crytek whose jobs may be impacted by these changes. Source: Kotaku Does all this drama mean Homefront: The Revolution is doomed?
Steve Bitto posted a article in Industry NewsSources at the gaming website Kotaku have reported that the majority of employees at Crytek UK have stopped working. Apparently, withheld pay checks at the troubled game developer have lead to a halt on all productions. The studio was currently working on Homefront: The Revolution, announced only a month ago. Over the past month, there have been rumblings of financial trouble at Crytek and this seems to confirm it. Ryse 2 was also rumored to be cancelled due to the issues. With the future of the studio uncertain, the fate of franchises like Crysis and Ryse are unclear. According to the Kotaku report, employees hope that publisher Deep Silver will purchase the studio allowing projects like Homefront: The Revolution to continue development. However, at this moment nothing has been confirmed. Source: Kotaku What Crytek franchise would you miss the most?
"What would you do for your freedom?" That's the main tagline for Crytek UK and Deep Silver's next game, Homefront: The Revolution. A follow-up to the original Homefront, "The Revolution is a free-roam FPS where you must wage guerrilla warfare and ignite the Revolution." The game takes place four years after North Koreans took control of the United States. You play as a resistance leader in the streets of Philadelphia trying to rally others to the cause. Using guerrilla warfare you must fight back the occupiers while inspiring the oppressed citizens of Philly. Homefront: The Revolution will feature a co-op mode in addition to the main story. According the game's official website, the mode allows you to "form your own Resistance Cell and become renowned as Heroes of the Revolution." The Revolution comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2015. More information will be coming at E3 next week so stay tuned to Game Podunk for updates. Source: Crytek
