Homefront novel announced, part of 'vast transmedia strategy'

Posted on October 10, 2010

The Homefront novel, which was passively mentioned last week during THQ’s Montreal Studio presser, has officially been announced, with an “early 2011″ publishing date. Written by John Milius (Red Dawn and Apocalypse Now) and Raymond Benson (Metal Gear Solid and James Bond novels), the novel is designed to flesh out the world of Homefront, which finds United States citizens dealing with a North Korean occupation.

The novel is part of the “vast transmedia strategy” for the franchise — according to THQ’s Danny Bilson — so expect the standard graphic novels and coloring books to follow. Okay, maybe not the latter, unless it’s bundled with a big red crayon for all the blood.

Although no further transmedia projects have been announced, let’s be clear about how ambitious THQ can get in these situations: Red Faction is getting a TV movie on SyFy that could potentially turn into a full series.
