We all know how the original Homefront turned out, an overhyped disappointment with no support after release.
After breaking even, THQ shut down Kaos studios and simply ignored all of Homefront's fans who were asking for a patch to fix the infamous rank switching glitch, that angered a lot of consumers and caused the game to hit the bargain bin within a few months of releasing.
The Homefront IP was then given to Crytek to develop a sequel.
