Koch Media together with its publishing label Deep Silver announced today that it has acquired the Homefront brand and all coherent assets from Crytek. This includes Homefront: The Revolution which has been announced on 2nd June 2014.
More importantly, the development of this brand new Homefront game will be continued in newly founded, Nottingham-based Deep Silver Dambuster Studios.
Dr. Klemens Kundratitz said:
“We are thrilled to see another great IP joining the Deep Silver universe. We strongly believe in the potential of Homefront: The Revolution and trust in the new team to continue the path we have been walking in the last years.”
In short, Crytek is falling apart. Or at least we can kiss goodbye to the Crytek we knew. The German studio revealed earlier this month that it has evolved from a developer to an Online-Publisher, and this move further strengthens that statement.
