abelthorneWell, Crytek (the main company) has had difficulties these last years with games selling far less than expected (Crysis 2, Ryse...) and buying a lot of other dev studios. So it's not really a big surprise.
There are rumours about Deep Silver buying Crytek UK (and probably completing the development of Homefront 2).
Naturally, Crysis 2 and Ryse were bad games. Smart people don't buy bad games for the price those are sold at, besides Ryse was an Xbox One exclusive if I recall correctly, and again, smart people would not buy Xbox One with PS4 being both cheaper and better and more user friendly in every way (unless they are Xbox fanboys, in which case I won't judge)
As such, Crytek alienated any intelligent playerbase they could have had with the release of Crysis 2, a lot of people bummed out to buy Crysis 2 because the first Crysis was totally awesome, only to find that Crysis 2 completely broke the cool story the original game had, had extremely linear and boring gameplay compared to the first game.
Being bought by Deep Silver would be the best thing that ever happened in Crytek's history, as Deep Silver have been quite cool so far (publishing games like Metro and Saints Row, they're a no bullshit company, a publisher not yet tainted like Ubisoft and EA Games have been, also from what I gathered they treat their developers with respect and understanding which is rare for publishers)
Either way, on linux or not on linux, I am not going to buy Homefront, this game sucks, I can smell it in the title, I can see it in the trailers.
