Sadly, it looks like the troubled development tale didn’t end well for Homefront. Despite what we thought of the game apparently it didn’t manage to deliver and thus it got low scores everywhere.
Starting as a project at THQ, Homefront’s rights were sold before the publisher closed doors to Crytek, where it left it out in turn and sold the rights again to Deep Silver. The publishing studio then signed with former developers of the title who formed Dambuster studio to continue developing Homefront: The Revolution. However, the troubles that faced the game left clear marks on it as a final product with no clear direction.
When you reach the credits of the game you’ll be surprised by a lengthy heartfelt comment from developers, where they spoke about the game’s rough road so far:
“Several reboots, the original publisher going into liquidation, the development studio changing ownership… I could go on. Thankfully, throughout all these difficult times, key people have kept faith and believe in the IP and the team’s ability to deliver a quality game, and I would especially like to acknowledge Klemens Kundratitz’ and Huw Beynon’s unwavering support, without which this game and this studio would not exist.
“For the team members that have made it to the end, I salute you for your endeavour. To create a game of this size and complexity with a relatively small team is a remarkable achievement. For those that we lost along the way, I would like to thank you all for your contributions, and you will find your names in the special thank you section.
“Finally, for all of you that have enjoyed playing the game, I promise you – this is just the beginning.”
