Newsbrief: Crytek bought the rights to the Homefront IP from THQ last year, after the publisher was cut up and sold off. Now Crytek has revealed the future of the franchise, with a new title coming to next-gen consoles next year.

Homefront: The Revolution is a shooter follow-up to the original game, which was developed by Kaos Studios, and is due for release next year on PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Deep Silver is co-publishing the game.

Kaos met its demise back in 2011 after THQ shuttered the studio. Gamasutra has an in-depth investigation into what happened at the company.

I live in Philadelphia, so this should be interesting at least. Nice to see it finally represented after Assassin's Creed 3 skipped over it.

I thought Crytek said that they weren't making any more traditional AAA games. I guess they changed their mind.

I think they actually said other than this one. Though I don't expect that to turn out accurate either.

Still amused at them scraping off the serial numbers (the first game was originally supposed to be about a Chinese takeover attempt) to make the N. Koreans the villains. Lead to a ludicrously loopy story with no real weight.

Guess they didn't want to deal with that fallout....

China doing a land invasion isn't really realistic either.

I always thought the Korean invasion was just a disguise for making a 2nd US Civil War game.
