Pub­lisher Deep Sil­ver Devel­oper Dam­buster Stu­dios For­mat PC, PS4, Xbox One Ori­gin UK Re­lease 2016

Now, we’re not say­ing the Home­front se­ries is re­spon­si­ble for the ends of two stu­dios and a pub­lisher, but it was metaphor­i­cally stand­ing around and look­ing shifty when the bailiffs came to Kaos Stu­dios, THQ and Cry­tek UK. Un­de­terred, Dam­buster is con­tin­u­ing this se­quel’s de­vel­op­ment, a game stretched across an open-world Philadelphia un­der North Korean oc­cu­pa­tion. A Gamescom CG trailer plays up the po­ten­tial of such a set­ting; a sub­se­quent demo squan­ders it by rip­ping a page out of Ubisoft’s open-world play­book, our he­roes clear­ing out a base and es­tab­lish­ing a comms link to fill out the map in the vicin­ity.
