Homefront to be different from other shooters

Written by David Stellmack

THQ has plans for the future of the franchise
Now that Homefront has been released and has shipped over 2.4+ million copies so far, both publisher THQ and developer Kaos Studios are already looking at the future of the franchise.

Recently, THQ’s Danny Bilson has said that “we have plans to make sure that Homefront continues to differentiate itself from other games in the shooting genre with future releases.” While nothing is confirmed at this point, we can tell you that it is a pretty safe bet that we will see a sequel to Homefront, and the sequel will be much more focused on the “guerrilla warfare” aspect in the next chapter of the franchise.

Although nothing has been confirmed yet, we do think that THQ and Kaos learned a lot from Homefront and we expect that franchise will continue in the future using all of the knowledge that they have gained so far.

i.e. they need to make sure it doesn't look like an alternate version of CoD.

Oh yes, a CoD clone with even dumber story can be good.

Yeah homefront was just as good as all the other shooters out there, there all pretty much the same anyway. Its all down to marketing these days.

Enjoyed homefront just as much as black ops, bulletstorm etc. Single player was bit short but shows it was good game cos wanted it to be longer!

Looking forward to Battlefield 3 to see a proper next gen fps..

The success of this game came down to gamers ignoring the negative reviews and actually "playing" the game for themselves! THATS why the game sold over a million copies!

Crysis 2 depsite a negative recpetion with PC gamers is still the best console fps imo. With Crysis 2, Crytek aimed at making the best console shooter, it easily has the best graphics on console (even on the ps3 even though its an inferior version) it also introduces deeper gameply with the use of stealth suit and differnet options of completeing levels.

Crysis 2 is a good game, its aimed at a differnet market than Crysis 1 was aimed at. I think it succeeded and the sales of it would agree..

Crysis 1 - PC developed game designed for testing PC's to the max open level design and stunning graphics. Still a huge fan base today.

Crsis 2 - Aimed at consoles. Best fps on console todate, best graphics, more immersive gameplay than usual point and shoot cod type game.

Crytek are excellent developer, no doubt with all the money they made from Crysis 2 they can develop a new game aimed at PC's which gamer's won't be able to run for 5 years so PC gamers can be happy to lol.

@Boomstick777

Crysis 1 was hyped by marketing and fell flat on its face with alot of the same problems that Crysis 2 PC has today. EMBARRASSING sales figures were the result and caused Crysis 2 to go multi-platform
