Crytek Purchases Homefront IP, Takes Full Control Of The Franchise

Share And Comment

Crytek has announced that they have acquired the intellectual property rights for the Homefront franchise following the auction of assets by THQ. Crytek’s association with the Homefront IP began in autumn 2011, when the developer announced it would be creating the second game in the series in partnership with THQ Inc. This makes absolutely perfect sense as Crytek was already heavily invested in the IP anyway. Now they’ll have full creative control over the franchise which should be really good news for gamers. With the huge success of their Crysis franchsie, everybody knows that Crytek can make a great shooter and now it seems they will add yet another to their stable.homefront-breaking-news-logo

Development work will continue on Homefront 2 at Crytek’s UK studio in Nottingham. “From day one, the Homefront 2 team has been committed to creating a game that takes the series to new heights and features the level of quality and innovation associated with Crytek,” said Nick Button-Brown, General Manager of Games at Crytek. “Nothing has changed with regards our development of the game, and we look forward to sharing the finished product with players.”
