Crytek no longer working on Homefront: The Revolution

Koch Media, the owner of Deep Silver, has acquired the Homefront brand and all its similar assets from the studio, who picked it up last year following THQ's bankruptcy. As a result, development on Homefront: The Revolution will now be handled by the newly formed Nottingham-based game studio Deep Silver Dambuster Studios, which was formerly Crytek UK.
"We are thrilled to see another great IP joining the Deep Silver universe," said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media Group, in the announcement. "We strongly believe in the potential of Homefront: The Revolution and trust in the new team to continue the path they have been walking in the last years."
There's no word as to why the developer shake-up was needed, but behind-the-scenes reports of Crytek's financial woes probably didn't help.
Homefront: The Revolution currently doesn't have a release date, but Deep Silver could peg one down as the game moves forward in development.
