Details of the game were not revealed, but job listings for the studio indicated that they were at work on a first-person shooter using "a world-class brand."
Today, THQ has revealed the game as Homefront, a story-driven first-person shooter set in the year 2027. Penned by Apocalypse Now screenwriter and Medal of Honor: European Assault director
Fighting will take place in the disused malls and city streets of a crumbling America, and THQ has promised an "interactive and cinematic FPS experience." Players will also be able to take command of wide variety of aerial and ground vehicles, as well as an infantry role. There will also be a multiplayer mode, though no details were announced.
