"The team in Nottingham--Crytek UK--is making great progress on our reinvention of Homefront," Button-Brown said.

He added that Crytek UK "has a number of projects we haven't talked about yet," though no further details were provided.

The 2011 original Crytek was developed by the since-shuttered Kaos Studios out of New York City and shipped 2.6 million copies.

Crytek purchased the Homefront franchise from THQ during the company's bankruptcy auction earlier this year for $544,000.

Story details for Homefront 2 have not been divulged, though Crytek said previously that it intends to create a game that "takes the series to new heights."
