Awk­ward past

EDGE - - HYPE -

Al­though this is Dam­buster’s first game, the stu­dio’s staff have a sto­ried past. They shipped the likes of TimeS­plit­ters,

Se­cond Sight and Haze as Free Rad­i­cal, and worked on Cr­y­sis and War­face as Cry­tek UK. In 2014 the stu­dio’s Ger­man par­ent com­pany, suf­fer­ing fi­nan­cial prob­lems af­ter over­ex­pan­sion, sold the Home­front name to pub­lisher Deep Sil­ver (barely a year af­ter it had ac­quired it from the bank­rupt THQ) and closed the stu­dio. It prompted a mass mi­gra­tion to Dam­buster, a stu­dio hastily set up by Deep Sil­ver in July 2014, where de­vel­op­ment of Home­front: The Rev­o­lu­tion con­tin­ues. De­spite sep­a­rat­ing from Cry­tek, Dam­buster still utilises the lat­est it­er­a­tion of CryEngine to­day.
