THQ just confirmed global release dates for Homefront, Kaos Studios’ anticipated freedom fighter shooter.

THQ just tweeted: “Homefront Release Date Confirmed – March 8th 2011 for the USA, March 11th for UK / Continental Europe, and March 10th for Australia.”

As has just been noted, these are the same days as the release of Dragon Age II.

The shooter got a first dev diary this morning, showing an occupied America and a focus on plot and consequence.

Homefront is set in 2027, and is based on American resistance to occupation by Asian forces.

A tie-in novel has been announced for the game, but is still without a date.

Not being put off by the bothersome detail of the original not actually even being out yet, THQ studio boss Danny Bilson is already talking up the sequel.
