Due to some current financial trouble at Crytek, the publisher has dropped its upcoming shooter Homefront: The Revolution. It will now be handled completely by publisher Deep Silver, which had originally partnered with Crytek as a co-publisher on the game. Development will change hands from Crytek UK to Deep Silver’s own Dambuster Studios in Nottingham. The good news is that members of the game’s original development team will continue working on the game at the new studio.
Homefront: The Revolution is still on track to arrive next year on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. As part of the deal, Deep Silver will also own the rights to future Homefront games. A superstitious person might think the Homefront series is cursed. The first game in the series was published by THQ, which went bankrupt in 2012. It remains to be seen if Crytek will meet the same fate.
