Homefront: The Revolution delayed until 2016, in production at new UK studio

Deep Silver acquires Homefront

It’s been a long time since we heard anything about Homefront: The Revolution, so much so that some of us at PCGamesN were starting to worry that the great-looking open-world shooter had quietly been taken behind the sheds and shot. But that’s absolutely not the case: Deep Silver have announced that their new UK studio Deep Silver Dambuster Studios has taken the reigns on the project, and are working hard to complete it in time for next year.  

The Nottingham-based studio, headed up by Hasit Zala, is looking to ship Homefront: The Revolution in 2016. The game was originally scheduled to release this year, but the change in schedule has been made to allow Deep Silver Dambuster “every opportunity to turn Homefront: The Revolution into a best-selling title.”

This isn’t the first time that a new studio has taken command of Homefront, so here’s hoping the multiple custodians of the game doesn’t affect the quality. When Jules went to see Homefront: The Revolution last year, he found it a compelling Crysis-like shooter with an intriguing dystopian hub world.
