Crytek Confident that Homefront 2 Will Be the Best Game They’ve Ever Made
Last week, THQ made a surprising announcement that a Homefront sequel was in the works, and that it would be developed by Crytek instead of an in-house studio. Now Crytek’s Cevat Yurli has shared some details on just what the project means for them, claiming that Homefront 2 will be the best game they have ever released.
When asked to describe Homefront 2, Yurli told NowGamer:
Homefront 2 will be more than just another Far Cry 2 or Crysis, and is shaping up to be the best title we’ve released so far.
Yurli also made references comparing Homefront 2 to the Crysis franchise:
Homefront is going to be Homefront, and Crysis will be Crysis. There will be learning shared between Crytek and Crytek UK of course, but how the gameplay of Homefront 2 will look like, it’s too early to say. Homefront 2 will be a new take on the franchise. We are very excited about this. We want to make sure that Homefront 2 rocks, and we want to be sure that by the time of release, it’s the best title we’ve released so far.
Those seem like some pretty high standards to live up to, but it also sounds like THQ may have chosen wisely in terms of development partners. Crytek is renowned for their graphic prowess, and has earned a certain pedigree in first person shooter development. Homefront 2 is currently slated for 2014 release.
