Crytek has released an official statement after buying the Homefront franchise from THQ, confirming that the acquisition won't affect the work that its UK studio is already doing on the upcoming Homefront 2.Homefront 1 wasn't that successful and forced THQ to partner with another developer, Crytek, to create a sequel that, hopefully, salvaged the first-person shooter brand.
After THQ's bankruptcy and auction of its franchises, Crytek decided to outright buy the Homefront rights.
Now, the company has released a statement about the transaction, confirming that its UK division will continue working just like before on Homefront 2.
According to Crytek boss Cevat Yerli, via a statement, the studio's staff have been "firm believers in the IP and its potential to excite and amaze players."
"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," said Nick Button-Brown, general manager of Games at Crytek.
"Nothing has changed with regards our development of the game, and we look forward to sharing the finished product with players."
Homefront 2 is scheduled to appear sometime in 2014 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
