Game delays have become quite a staple and recognizable theme in the industry of late, following recurring delays of the game Project Cars, and even the recent delay of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End, it appears another game is being put on delay. Deep Silver has announced that their upcoming game Homefront: The Revolution is being delayed until 2016. As I have stated delays are a stale of gaming lately and has been quite well accepted by many, it has not stopped it being any more annoying though it is not a bad thing when the game faces development struggles as is this case with this particular game. In August 2014, reports surfaced about the previous developers at Crytek UK’s studio were not being paid and the studio shut down due to financial issues shortly after. Development of the game came over to Deep Silver’s new team, Dambuster studios, where the game continues to be worked on. Deep Silver boss Dr. Klemens Kundratitz confirmed the delay today, saying that the studio needed more time to make Homefront: The Revolution a best-selling title.
“Dambuster Studios are an extraordinarily talented group. We are giving the team every opportunity to turn Homefront: The Revolution into a best-selling title, and have set a 2016 release date to provide them the time they need to achieve this. You can expect to hear more about the game later this year.”
Homefront: The Revolution will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2016.
Hopefully the game will reach its maximum potential when it arrives in 2016.
