Homefront is switching hands yet again. First, it was from THQ to Crytek. Now, publisher Deep Silver has wholly acquired the franchise, including all creative assets for Homefront: The Revolution from Crytek. Development on the game is being moved to a new studio, Deep Silver Dambuster Studios.
The news comes in the wake of Crytek struggling to pay employees and finance projects. We haven't talked about Crytek's issues much on Giant Bomb, but the studio's deep troubles have been well documented by Jason Schreier at Kotaku.
Homefront: Revolution had been under the care of Crytek UK. It's unclear if the original development staff will relocate to Deep Silver Dambuster Studios, or if the game will suffer any delays.
