Apparently, with the first game barely out of the door, developers Kaos seem to think we want to hear about a sequel. Yep, there’s going to be a Homefront 2.
Speaking to CVG, the studio’s David Votypka has said that the single player would be longer, but it wouldn’t be as long as some of the single player-only games out there. “It’s a balance really,” he said. “So if we we’re doing a single-player only game – and there are some of those out there of course – then you’re talking maybe a 20-hour single-player campaign.”
Votypka talks about extending it “a few hours” but stresses it wouldn’t be possible to head past the 10-hour mark and deliver a “category-leader multiplayer game”, given the resources.
But whilst Homefront’s single player has been the source of a few average reviews, the multiplayer is faring better. “We also want to focus on a large-scale multiplayer game and that you get a lot of hours play out of that as well – because that’s infinitely more replayable than single-player anyway and you’re going to spend the bulk of your time there. So we really want to make sure that’s robust and deep.”
I’m just looking forward to playing the first one, myself.
