Homefront Clears 375k Units on Launch Day

While we received a bit of arguably negative news regarding Homefront and its price drop earlier today, THQ has stepped forward with a more positive development. Although the game came out just yesterday, it has managed to sell more than one third of a million copies. CEO of THQ Brian Ferrel had this to say about the feat:

“We are delighted with first day sales for Homefront and are already fulfilling re-orders for the game from multiple retailers,”

Games chief Danny Bilson also did a fair amount of bragging, saying:

“Homefront’s excellent multiplayer experience, combined with our commitment to dedicated servers, make this a must-have purchase for gamers. Due to the strong and growing demand for Homefront’s multiplayer, we continue to add dedicated server capacity. We are confident that the large-scale multiplayer maps featuring 32 players, vehicles, infantry and drones, will continue to be a major draw for the huge audience of FPS gamers looking for a new experience over the coming months.”

Reception to the multiplayer spectacle has been fairly mixed, although those sales numbers suggest that at least a lot of people tried the game. It’s too early to tell whether or not the title possesses the staying power of a Call of Duty game, but the ongoing support is certainly a step in the right direction. Homefront is available now on HD consoles, the PC and the OnLive gaming platform.
