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.
