Deep Silver, the development team behind Dead Island, Saints Row, and the upcoming Metro: Redux, have announced that they have "acquired the Homefront brand and all coherent assets from Crytek" to complete production of Homefront: The Revolution.
Announced at the beginning of June, The Revolution's production has been delayed, tampered with, and almost cancelled due to the turmoil that is Crytek UK over the past few weeks. Officially announced on the Deep Silver news site, Dr. Klemens Kundratitz from the Koch Media Group said, “We are thrilled to see another great IP joining the Deep Silver universe. We strongly believe in the potential of Homefront: The Revolution and trust in the new team to continue the path we have been walking in the last years.”
Crytek UK has been under incredible scrutiny over the past few weeks for allegations of not paying employees on time, if at all, as well as employees quitting. From the programmers up to the recent departure of the game's director Hasit Zala and Development Manager Ben Harris, Crytek seems to be having quite a bit of financial trouble. Their future is extremely unclear at this point but whatever news is coming doesn't seem likely to be good news.
Homefront: The Revolution is back on schedule to release in 2015 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
