Homefront Novel to Accompany Game Release, More Games Planned?

THQ Inc. and the Random House Publishing Group today announced that a novel set in the Homefront universe and co-written by John Milius (Red Dawn and Oscar Award-winning Apocalypse Now) and New York Times bestselling author Raymond Benson (author of two Metal Gear Solid books and multiple James Bond novels) will be published by Random House’s Del Rey imprint, and arrive in early 2011 to coincide with the release of the first Homefront game.

So it looks like they are planning on taking Homefront and turning it into a franchise title. Good for them. I like the game and what I saw of it at GamesCom and think it has some massive room for continued expansion not only in DLC but in future titles. I could certainly see an RTS set in the game’s universe as well as an MMO and future titles in other theaters of war. With the powerhouse writing team they’ve lined up I think they have the power to sustain a viable universe. The game feels sort of Red Dawn already but a more mature version of it and I think if they make the games properly this could become a perennial franchise.

"We’re delighted to confirm the first element of what will become a vast transmedia strategy for Homefront," said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President - Core Games, THQ. "John Milius has already worked with us extensively on the Homefront game, and we’re thrilled to have him and Raymond on board as we develop our near-future world into other types of media. Random House is a great partner to help us reach an even broader audience."

"Homefront represents a fascinating vision of the near future," added John Milius. "After completing my work on the game, it became clear that there were many more stories to tell, and this book will offer a chilling look at this near-future world."

Homefront the videogame is a thrilling first person shooter set for release on the Xbox 360(R) video game and entertainment system, PlayStation(R)3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC in March 2011. It tells the story of a stricken America, fallen to savage military occupation in the year 2027.
