#DeepSilver announced today that the upcoming Homefront: The Revolution, an #openworld #shooter from Dambuster Studios has been pushed back to 2016 — it was originally expect to launch sometime this year. The sequel to the Windows PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 release Homefront began at Crytek UK, which has since been shuttered. In turn Deep Silver acquired the studio and its Homefront IP last year, working to transition the game to Dambuster Studios, Deep Silver’s third studio, based in Nottingham, U.K. The company says that it wants to give the team “every opportunity to turn Homefront: The Revolution into a best-selling title” following this transition, and has now set a 2016 date to provide Dambuster more time.
“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,” Deep Silver Dambuster boss Hasit Zala said. “The team here believes we are working on something truly special.”
Dambuster Studios currently has 126 staff members, made up mostly of former Crytek staff. It revealed a new logo and website today alongside the delay announcement.
