Well it looks like the the trouble behind the latest Homefront title may have eased a little, with Deep Silver Parent company having bought out the IP from Crytek and having now moved Homefront: The Revolution to a new studio. Here’s hoping things run smoothly from now on.
Deep Silver has acquired the Homefront intellectual property from Crytek, and Homefront: The Revolution is now being developed at a new studio, Deep Silver Dambuster Studios, Deep Silver announced today.
“We are thrilled to see another great IP joining the Deep Silver universe,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver parent company Koch Media, in a press release today. “We strongly believe in the potential of Homefront: The Revolution and trust in the new team to continue the path they have been walking in the last years.”
According to Koch Media, the acquisition includes “the Homefront brand and all coherent assets.” The company did not disclose financial terms of the deal.
Homefront: The Revolution is the upcoming sequel to Homefront, which was developed by the now-defunct Kaos Studios and published by the now-defunct THQ. Nottingham, U.K.-based Crytek UK, formerly known as Free Radical, began developing the sequel for THQ. The studio’s parent company, Crytek, acquired the Homefront IP from THQ for just over $544,000 after the latter company went bankrupt in December 2013. Deep Silver had already been jointly publishing Homefront: The Revolution with Crytek.
