Crytek Acquires Rights to Homefront IP

I have mentioned many times that I loved the concept for Homefront but the single player execution was lackluster to say the least. It is easy to blame the game developer and in this case had they made a better game I think THQ might still be around today.
Development work will continue on Homefront 2 at Crytek’s UK studio in Nottingham. “From day one, the Homefront 2 team has been committed to creating a game that takes the series to new heights and features the level of quality and innovation associated with Crytek,” said Nick Button-Brown, General Manager of Games at Crytek. “Nothing has changed with regards our development of the game, and we look forward to sharing the finished product with players.”
We/I can only hope that they adopt the Crysis 2/3 model for the new Homefront and allow players to choose how they want to play a certain section and also expand the story line to last more than 3 hours.
Bottom line I think this will be a good thing for the franchise with more positive notes than negative.
