Homefront developer, Kaos Studios, recently enlightened CVG to potential sequel information. Kaos GM, David Votpka, said that the next game’s campaign will be longer than the five-hour Homefront story and will have more balance. There wasn’t much clarity if he knew we’d see Homefront 2 or this is what will happen if there is a sequel. Although Homefront 2 was planned back in December, sales and reviews of Homefront and THQ’s stock drop may have changed that. If we do see a second game, let’s hope it sees a better reception where the publisher doesn’t lose real stock. See below for Mr. Votpka’s statements in full about a single player campaign.
“It’s a balance really. So if we were doing a single-player only game – and there are some of those out there of course – then you’re talking maybe a 20-hour single-player campaign. I think going forward we’d certainly work on extending it a few hours, but going past the 10-hour mark and doing a category-leader multiplayer game… you just have to balance your development resources there.”
