Crytek Developing Homefront Sequel

THQ announces a Homefront sequel, saying development of the first-person shooter follow-up is being handled by German developer Crytek following their closure of Homefront developer KAOS Studios. Presumably the game will be powered by Crytek's CryENGINE, as the announcement references "Crytek's industry leading technology." The game does not yet have an official title or a set release date. "Selecting Crytek to take Homefront forward underscores our strategy of working with the industry's best talent," said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. "Homefront's unique setting and storyline captivated gamers the world over. With Crytek's industry leading technology and legendary experience in the FPS genre, we're supremely confident that the next Homefront will deliver that AAA-quality experience that players demand."

I'd love to see Crytek make some inroads into the middleware territory, as the gaming industry is currently far too reliant on Epic. Saying that I thought Far Cry 2 had a far better engine (excellent performance, better feel, better vehicles, etc) and very designer friendly tools out-of-the-box, whereas performance with CryEngine is still distinctly lacking; Far Cry 3 is actually looking very good, as they've paid a lot of attention to animations - facial and body gestures. I'm surprised Valve hasn't pushed Source more but the only full games that have made it out have been glorified mods.

As for Homefront, I was never impressed with what I saw. It was hugely hyped and advertised, yet was slated in reviews and appears yet another generic COD-inspired UE3 game. Why they believe it warrants a sequel I have no idea, a risky move when even highly acclaimed games like Bioshock and Dragon's Age screwed things up with their sequels.
