    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.

    He further adds that "I think that there will be genres where the gesture-based gaming... will actually be the superior way to play. Dance games, music games, exercise games. It's really hard to imagine an exercise game with your thumbs,"
