GamesCom 2010: THQ reaffirmed its commitment to the PC platform today at GamesCom 2010 in Cologne, Germany, with Digital Extremes producer Frank De Lise revealing that there was a team of 30 developers working on just the PC version of THQ's Homefront.

"The PC platform isn't really getting the attention it deserves," said De Lise after a presentation of the upcoming shooter.

"There's a team of 30 or so developers at Digital Extremes just working on the PC build of this though," said De Lise, who promised that the PC version of Homefront will have been essentially remade for the platform.

Homefront on the PC will feature clan support, a different UI, DirectX 11 content and a bunch of other features for the PC SKU, hinted De Lise.

Homefront is set in the year 2027, when a Unified Korea has successfully invaded the United States and begun occupying the territory. Players take the role of US insurgents tasked with moving jet fuel from Colorado to San Francisco in order to help stage a counterattack.

Homefront is being developed for consoles by Kaos Studios and optimised for PC by Digital Extremes. Let us know your thoughts in the forums.
