Homefront 2 was one of many IP to be snapped up in THQ’s auction earlier this week. Crytek bought the title, which is currently being developed at its Nottingham studio Crytek UK. Founder Cevat Yerli has stated that it’s business as usual for the sequel.
CVG reports on an official Crytek statement, in which Yerli explained, “Since we first reached an agreement to develop Homefront 2, we’ve been firm believers in the IP and its potential to excite and amaze players.
“Our cooperation with THQ was always positive and we would like to thank them for all their support over the last two years and express our sympathy to those affected by the recent events at the company.”
General manager of games at Crytek, Nick Button-Brown added, “From day one, the Homefront 2 team has been committed to creating a game that takes the series to new heights and features the level of quality and innovation associated with Crytek.
“Nothing has changed with regards our development of the game, and we look forward to sharing the finished product with players.”
