Crytek head Cevat Yerli said, “We see Homefront as a really strong universe that has a lot of potential and that has been expertly created and marketed by THQ,”

“We believe that bringing our level of quality, creativity and production values to the next Homefront title, creates an opportunity for both THQ and Crytek to deliver a truly blockbuster game. It’s really important to us that THQ has the faith in giving us a lot of creative freedom over one of its most important properties to allow us to bring the Homefront world to life in a new and innovative way.”

However whether or not Homefront will run on CryEngine 3 has yet to be confirmed.
