Homefront: The Revolution - Native Mac & Linux versions confirmed

Homefront: The Revolution has been officially confirmed to be in development for Mac & Linux. A recent press release from the publisher confirmed the launch date for the PC version, and that “native Mac and Linux versions are also in development.” While I have personally head rumors of a Mac version of this game, nothing was official until now.

The original Homefront was a shooter from 2011 that did not find much success despite its unique premise. I have played the original and it is an okay game, but I very much look forward to a sequel as I do love the setting.

As far as I know, this will be the first game on OS X to use CRYENGINE. While some others are also listed as in-development such as SNOW and Kingdom Come: Deliverance, there is no official confirmation as of yet. This is the first one that I’ve seen. Hype!

“Homefront: The Revolution is scheduled for release on May 17th in North America, and May 20th in all other territories on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. Native Mac and Linux versions are also in development.”

This would seem to indicate that the Mac/Linux versions will not be launching alongside the PC version, but rather sometime later. Still, that is exciting news because this looks like a pretty awesome shooter/coop shooter title.

Homefront: The Revolution is available to pre-order on Steam for $59.99.

I’ll post more about the game as I know more in relation to the Mac/Linux versions. You can watch (an age-restricted) trailer below.
