Train2Game students have reacted to the news that Crytek are working on a Homefront sequel scheduled for release in 2014, and there are some interesting comments among them.
“Not bad, I liked the story of Homefront and to be honest I never played the multiplayer” said Alex Norton on the Train2Game Facebook page “But it was enjoyable, plus it’s always a good thing to hear that games are being delayed generally they get better (e.g. Mass Effect 3)”
Train2Game student Shaun also believes the lengthy development time will ultimately be a positive thing for Homefront 2.
“GOOD! I think games are rushed to much to cope with demand! 3 to 4 years, I reckon.”
However, Train2Game student Michael Caine thinks a 2014 release could be risky, given that the next generation of consoles is predicted to hit the market around then.
“Isn’t 2014 pushing it for the new instalment if predictions are right for a 2014 next gen?” he said on the Train2Game Facebook page “Kinect should be used along with control if the predictions fail but last gen can still survive years through a new gen so it could be a 50/50 gamble. I guess we’ll have to see.”
There are also those who are less enthusiastic about the news that Crytek will be taking control of the Homefront brand.
“I’d stay away if I were Crytek…..Homefront isnt worth the effort as it hardly set the world on fire. Make a new IP.” said Train2Game student Kev Curtis.
“I thought Homefront was a gigantic flop ?! Why the hell are they keeping this IP alive?” he asked.
These are just a few of Train2Game students thoughts on the prospect of a new Homefront title by Crytek, but what is your opinion?
