Deep Silver CEO Klemens Kundratitz believes that many people will be surprised by the quality of its upcoming shooter Homefront: The Revolution, despite the "challenges" the game has faced during its development.

"Between now and the summer, Homefront is our entire focus," Kundratitz said in the latest issue of MCV. "We're going to surprise many people with the quality that product will finally deliver. We had some challenges along the way, but we are determined to establish Homefront as a well-recognised IP in the shooter genre.

"The game offers a massive single-player part which is really deep and immersive and then the co-op on top is really fun and unique."

Homefront: The Revolution began life at Crytek UK under publisher THQ before being acquired outright by Crytek in 2013. The game is then believed to have changed direction, altering its approach from a linear campaign shooter to an open-world title.

Crytek later sold the IP to Deep Silver's parent company Koch Media after suffering from its own financial difficulties in 2014, transitioning Crytek UK to a new studio called Dambuster Studios. The game later saw a significant delay, being pushed back from 2015 to May 20, 2016.

An open beta for the game is reportedly due to take place at some point prior to the game's release.
