Crytek: Homefront 2 “Can [Still] Make A Big Splash”
Crytek co-founder Avni Yerli believes Homefront 2 can still make a big splash when it releases, despite Homefront’s disappointing MetaCritic score of 70.
Speaking to GI International at GDC, Yerli and games GM Nick Button-Brown said that Homefront 2 can be comparatively successful.
The first game has indeed a low Metacritic, but due to really great positioning and great marketing it has reached a good mind share. And I think with Crytek quality attached to it and similar marketing attached to it, it can make a big splash at the time it comes out.
Can it make a big splash? Perhaps. But will that be the muddy splash of a car driving by the curb as you’re walking down the sidewalk, or the playful splash of the attractive young lady at the pool that’s trying to get your attention?
When you look at the world they created in the first game and the world that they were talking about for the second game, the setting they were talking about… obviously we can’t talk about it yet, but it’s really cool.
Really cool, huh? Anyone want to bet Homefront 2 will be set on a space station orbiting Mars? No takers?
