On the heels of the high-profile delay of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End earlier this week, another highly-anticipated title has seen its release date shift from a nebulous 2015 launch now into 2016 – sorry, Homefront fans, you have a little longer to wait.
Publisher Deep Silver announced that the sequel to the 2011 shooter, Homefront: The Revolution, has seen a delay into 2016 following its originally-intended release of sometime in 2015. Speaking in an announcement, Deep Silver CEO Dr. Klemens Kundratitz explained:
“Dambuster Studios are an extraordinarily talented group. We are giving the team every opportunity to turn Homefront: The Revolution into a best-selling title, and have set a 2016 release date to provide them the time they need to achieve this. You can expect to hear more about the game later this year.”
Deep Silver acquired all rights to the Homefront IP back in July 2014 from Crytek UK, as part of the liquidation of assets from publisher THQ during the company’s fold – after the acquisition, Deep Silver began work on Homefront: The Revolution, showcasing the game at last year’s E3 2014 in early stages of development.
Homefront: The Revolution is currently in development by Deep Silver Dambuster Studios, with release now set for 2016.
