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."

THQ has just announced that the Homefront sequel titled as "Homefront 2" will be developed by Crytek's UK studio, who worked on the multiplayer portion of Crysis 2 and previously developed Time Splitters.
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.

"The world of Homefront is so rich and fertile with the idea of occupation; not only occupation in the USA but occupation as a philosophy in a video game and experiencing the human/civilian side of it.
"And then there are all the new systems that we brought to multiplayer and just experimenting on those. We're super excited about all the ideas we have. In fact, there are so many ideas that we have to try and figure out which ones we can fit into Homefront 2."

Jeremy Greiner, Kaos Community boss stated that there is every possibility in future gamers can see Homefront set in London.
Jeremy said, “This isn’t an American flag waver. It’s really important to us that people all over the world can identify with the themes of occupation,”
“We’re not interested in triggering American patriotism. Hopefully those themes will be universal.
“So absolutely, we could do a Homefront London. We’ve even joked on our Twitter that we could do a Homefront Reykjavik. We can do anything.”
We all are aware that in Homefront we sees North Koreans invades a weakened US, and details about Homefront 2 already confirmed by Bilson, it takes place on the other side of the Mississippi, nobody knows what’s going on over there because the North Koreans have irradiated the Mississippi with radioactive iodine and nobody can cross it without a hazmat suit. It’s very interesting stuff.
