The fact that Homefront: The Revolution is coming out at all is impressive, given its turbulent history of development. But if this latest video is anything to go off, the game’s got problems.
Last year, before E3, and back when Dambuster Studios was still called Crytek Nottingham and hadn’t been sold to Deep Silver, I saw a presentation of Homefront: The Revolution in action. I thought it looked fantastic, like an open-world version of Half-Life 2‘s City 17.
After months of missed pay and walkouts, the staff of Homefront developer Crytek UK were finally paid this week, according to two people familiar with the company. It’s a welcome bit of news for employees who were worried they might never see what they were owed in full.
