Homefront: The Revolution release date tipped for May

Homefront The Revolution 1

The Homefront: The Revolution release date may be coming this May, according to a leak from another retailer.

It's looking increasingly likely that Homefront: The Revolution will arrive this May, as there's been another leak from a prominent retailer.

Xbox Achievements spotted earlier this year that US retailer Target had a reservation card for the game that listed a release date of May 17, 2016.

And now, MCV has discovered UK retailer GAME has added a May release date for its own listing of Homefront: The Revolution, which is still there at the time of writing.

Deep Silver hasn't yet officially offered a release date for the sequel to the 2011 shooter Homefront.

The Revolution was announced back in June 2014, with Deep Silver publishing the title and Crytek as the developer.

Just a month after it was announced Deep Silver actually acquired the Homefront IP and passed development to Deep Silver Dambuster – a new studio made up of the Crytek UK crew who had started work on the game.

Homefront: The Revolution was originally due to be released in 2015, but got pushed back to an unknown date in 2016.

The first Homefront was an oddity. The Single-player campaign was a generic, lazy mess. But, man...The multiplayer was almost perfect. The maps were fantastic, the servers worked well and felt balanced. The load-outs offered lots of options that were imaginative, fun and worked for different play styles and abilities. The only pity was the base weapons such as sniper rifles felt a little too nerfed. It's a shame cod drowned it out.

I had the original Homefront. It's still around here somewhere. I never played the multiplayer and the campaign was terrible so it just kind of sat there. When I finally got my Xbox Live up and running again I gravitated towards Battlefield 4 instead.

I totally agree, the campaign was bloody awful! Which is why the multiplayer was such a shock to me, a complete contrast. At the time, I guess it was competing with the brilliant Bad company series, cod, Halo and whatever else. Not to mention as you rightly point out, the single-player which gave no indication that PvP might be any good.

Are the servers still up? I might check it out (but Battlefield 4's multiplayer is great).

Not sure, I haven't played it for a long time. I'd consider buying the game again if they were, however.
Battlefield 4 took a long time to get right, but it is amazingly stable now, I do love it. What puts me off is the team killing in hardcore, it's worse now than ever. I used to equate Battlefield to a grown up shooter, and cod was for kids, or the more casual player. It seems they've migrated..Which is a pity. Just my personal opinion.

It did take a long time for Battlefield 4 to become stable (unfortunately) and some of its ideas are still really skewed (although they fixed a lot from Battlefield 3, especially for new players). I still love Battlefield 4 for its massive, crazy, insane Conquest mode.

It is brilliant. Not everyone wants to run and gun on a tiny map, and I'm too old anyway for that twitch stuff. So I love that I can camp up, fly a plane...hold a roof, whatever. Homefront was like that too, big maps, something for everyone. I really hope they capture that magic again.
