Another day, another delay into 2016. Uncharted 4 might be the most high-profile of this latest wave, but there are quite a few people who were looking forward to playing the third-tier military shooter franchise Homefront before 2015 wrapped itself up. Sorry, but Deep Silver has announced that Homefront: The Revolution will be pushed back into 2016.
The announcement comes as Deep Silver reveals the new logo for its third in-house development studio, Dambuster.
Development on Homefront: The Revolution continues at full speed, with the game now scheduled for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Mac, as well as Windows and Linux PC in 2016.
Deep Silver acquired the Homefront franchise during the THQ auction two years ago, and Dambusters has been hard at work at morphing it into the AAA shooting series that its former publisher was never able to. Director Hasit Zala explains:
“We are excited that Deep Silver’s acquisition of the Homefront IP and assets from Crytek has allowed development of Homefront: The Revolution to continue with minimum disruption. The team here believes we are working on something truly special.”
“Dambuster Studios are an extraordinarily talented group,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO Deep Silver. “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.”
We’ll find out next year how this pans out. Homefront: The Revolution will be released in 2016 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
