Homefront release delayed

Kaos' shooter pushed back a week.

THQ has pushed back the release of forthcoming shooter Homefront by a week.

CEO Brian Farrell broke the news during an investor call earlier today, explaining the Kaos Studios-developed FPS will now launch in the US on 15th March, rather than sharing the 8th with Dragon Age 2. A THQ rep subsequently told Joystiq, "We think we have a great opportunity to dominate retail on this date."

The game is currently scheduled for an 11th March launch on these shores. We'll check whether it will see a corresponding bump over here just as soon as THQ's UK HQ opens for business.

In case you're not up to speed, the game, due on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, sees you defending the US from an invading North Korean army.

"I promise you [Homefront] competes with everybody else in the genre; in the shooter genre, in the action genre, or what I like to call the 'you're in the movie' genre," insisted THQ exec Danny Bilson back in October.

"This is an incredible experience."
