Is this first gameplay footage of Homefront 2?, Yes it is. The footage is taken from early build of Homefront 2 which is currently in development at Crytek.
Take a look at the footage below, you can see proper Homefront 2 gameplay from 6:50 mark. Apart from Crytek as developer nothing has been confirmed about Homefront 2 not also the platforms on which it will arrive.
With GamesCom 2013 just around the corner, we expect to hear something official.
In a recent interview to GamesIndustry, Crytek Co-founder Avni Yerli said that Homefront 2 can make big splash at launch even though the first game in franchise got critical reception.
"It has a huge mind share, everybody knows the IP," explained Yerli. "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."
Crytek's GM Nick Button-Brown teases some really cool setting for Homefront 2. ""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."
"The team choose and they really, really like it and thought it was a great opportunity and we'll support them on that."

"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."
