THQ announced on Tuesday that they will be partnering with veteran FPS developer Crytek for the next Homefront game, which is currently scheduled for release during the company’s 2014 fiscal year (sometime between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014). It will be released on PC as well as consoles. Homefront was released in March 2011 to mostly negative reviews, including a tepid 6.7 out of 10 from Game Freaks 365.

“Selecting Crytek to take Homefront forward underscores our strategy of working with the industry’s best talent,” said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. “Homefront’s unique setting and storyline captivated gamers the world over. With Crytek’s industry leading technology and legendary experience in the FPS genre, we’re supremely confident that the next Homefront will deliver that AAA-quality experience that players demand.”

“We see Homefront as a really strong universe that has a lot of potential and that has been expertly created and marketed by THQ,” said Cevat Yerli, Founder, CEO and President of Crytek. “We believe that bringing our level of quality, creativity and production values to the next Homefront title creates an opportunity for both THQ and Crytek to deliver a truly blockbuster game. It’s really important to us that THQ has the faith in giving us a lot of creative freedom over one of its most important properties to allow us to bring the Homefront world to life in a new and innovative way.”
