Deep Silver and CryTek UK have today announced the development of Homefront: The Revolution for release on next-generation platforms in the near future. Taking place some time after the events of the THQ-developed 2011 title Homefront and set in the Greater Korean Republic-ruled American state of Philadelphia, the second entry's narrative remains shrouded in secrecy and will stay as such until its fully-fledged reveal at E3 2014 next week.
Plenty can happen in three years, of course, but what with the original Homefront having earned a decidedly average 6/10 score here at On-Screen at the time of its launch, it's safe to say that CryTek have their work cut out when it comes to convincing us to part with a further £50 for their follow-up entry. That The Revolution is being developed exclusively for next-generation video game consoles bodes well, though, and if nothing else, we'll take an open-world FPS such as this over a new Call of Duty any day.
Homefront: The Revolution will set the gears of change in motion on PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PC in 2015.
