I think Turtle Rock are probably in safe hands considering this is the same guys that are happy to let R* and Irrational (amongst others) be as inventive as they are.

They own 2k as well, they bought the WWE license apparently (I'm not a fan, but it's good for them). 10.8 million? Crytek bought homefront for 500K.
It's all in the game...

I thought crytek were already making homefront 2? Did they have to buy the rights once THQ went down?

I think they were making it as a freelancer and decided to buy the whole lot since it was on the table and they already had half a game.

Hopefully they'll make a good go of it. I liked the idea to homefront but the execution was just terrible.
