Homefront sales expected to be strong

Written by David Stellmack


THQ projected to ship 1.5 million copies for launch
The early reviews have been strong and the buzz about Homefront continues to grow. THQ has already confirmed that it is the most pre-ordered title in the company’s history. Now we are learn that industry analyst, Colin Sebastian from Lazard Capital, is projecting that THQ will ship 1.5 million units at launch.

With an initial shipment of 1.5 million units at launch other analysts that we have spoken with suggest that they are expecting a strong launch for the title as the word gets out among more gamers and sales continue. THQ is doing their part with a full media assault which will do nothing but help the sale of the title.

There was some concern about a report that the campaign story mode offers only about 5 hours of game play; but it appears not to be a problem, as the strong multiplayer will give the title staying power. Whispers from those that have finished the story claim to have been blown away, and were left wanting more. This is always a good sign in our book.

If Homefront has a smooth launch and the reviews continue to be as positive as they have been so far, we are projecting that this title could be a big success for publisher THQ and could establish a solid franchise for the title going forward. We only have a week left to see how this title does, but things are looking good for developer Kaos studios which has a lot riding on the success of this title.
