    Recently, I posted a news article on Crytek gaining a new source of income that "rejuvenated" their funds. Before hand, they kept it quiet on how and where they exactly got this money, but have now recently announced that they sold Homefront and all of it's properties, including the brand new Homefront sequel, to Deep Silver. Deep Silver will now be taking over development on Homefront: Revolution.

    Looks like the rumor was true. Least Homefront was saved I guess, but was it even worth saving? The first game is one of the very few I didn't bother with lastgen.

    It was okay, I never had a chance to try to multiplayer though. I've seen the main story(I played the first two missions myself from what I remember), I like it because Korea is involved.(*Looks at his avatar*) But the gameplay is a different story. These are the words from a person who doesn't like FPS's though so don't take them too serious. :3

    I might buy this new Homefront if the price is right. ^_^

    I wouldn't say I'm confident about this, not that Homefront was ever that great to begin with but Deep Silver isn't full of great devs that would make it any better.

    So Crytek wasted years of time and money and Deep Silver has paid millions for Homefront. It sounds like a lose-lose all around.

    I beg you don't Crytek.

    lol idk if wiki is right but it says the company has released more than 200 games. Only games I remember from them is the dead island and metro series. There not something to brag about either, but neither was homefront. That game looked and played like a ps2 game. Just couldnt get into it, but maybe cry has a decent amount done already. That way Deep Silver can have a good game or at least one thats not glitchy.

    Deep Silver is mostly a publisher, they've published around 200 games. They (with their 2 now 3 dev groups) have developed only a handful of games, including Saints Row IV (they acquired ownership of Volition as Saints Row IV was being developed).
