THQ has announced first day sales of Homefront approximated 375,000 units in North America. The publisher didn't get carried away with hyperbole, instead labelling the sales performance as "robust".
"We are delighted with first day sales for Homefront and are already fulfilling re-orders for the game from multiple retailers," said Brian Farrell, THQ president and CEO.
The publisher also confirmed the addition of new multiplayer servers.
"Homefront's excellent multiplayer experience, combined with our commitment to dedicated servers, make this a must-have purchase for gamers," said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. "Due to the strong and growing demand for Homefront's multiplayer, we continue to add dedicated server capacity. We are confident that the large-scale multiplayer maps featuring 32 players, vehicles, infantry and drones, will continue to be a major draw for the huge audience of FPS gamers looking for a new experience over the coming months."
Homefront will be released in the UK this Friday.
With day one sales of 375,000 copies, we'd anticipate the game will comfortably reach 500,000 come the end of its first week. Assuming an optimistic 50 per cent drop off in subsequent weeks, the game could be looking at a figure in the region of 800k-900k for March.
