Homefront IP acquired by Koch Media and Deep Silver
Crytek has now relinquished the rights to the Homefront IP to Koch Media and publisher Deep Silver after heavy financial and development troubles. Hoping to keep the development process unharmed, Crytek UK staffers are being transferred to Deep Silver’s new Nottingham studio. Homefront: The Revolution, will now be developed in the newly-founded Nottingham-based Deep Silver Dambuster Studios.
Cyrtek has confirmed it had been in discussions with Koch Media regarding the acquisition of rights for the Homefront IP, as well as the transfer of the Homefront team from Crytek’s Nottingham studio to Koch Media. “[They] will continue their hard work on upcoming shooter Homefront: The Revolution,” said the Crytek statement. “Both parties hope to finalize and implement a deal soon.”
“We are thrilled to see another great IP joining the Deep Silver universe,” says Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media Group.
