Crytek Acquires Rights to Homefront
Crytek today announced the acquisition of the intellectual property rights for the Homefront franchise following an auction of assets by THQ. Crytek’s association with the Homefront IP began in autumn 2011, when the developer announced it would be creating the second game in the series in partnership with THQ . Following THQ’s recent decision to file for chapter 11 bankruptcy and the subsequent sale of the publisher’s assets, Crytek submitted the high bid at auction to secure the rights to the Homefront franchise.
Development work will continue on Homefront 2 at Crytek’s UK studio in Nottingham.
