THQ has confirmed that it will develop a sequel to 2010's Homefront, which sold well even in the face of middling and mixed reviews.

Chatting to Eurogamer at E3 2011, THQ's Danny Bilson described Homefront as a 'learning experience' and promised that the sequel will move forward.

'We also learned a lot about the service side of an online game needing dedicated servers,' said Bilson. '[We] learned a tremendous amount, which is all rolled out now in the demo. I hear it's going beautifully, with great connectivity. Everything's smooth.'

'The issues we had on Homefront we'll never have again. And yet, I absolutely love that brand and want to continue to make it great.'

However, THQ has also confirmed hat it has closed Homefront's original developer, Kaos Studios, and folded the remnants into THQ Montreal.

'The Montreal studio will take over product development and overall creative management for the Homefront franchise,' said the official statement. 'The Montreal studio actively collaborated with Kaos on Homefront.'
