A Critical Title Update for Homefront on Xbox 360 is "a day or two" away from Microsoft certification, THQ has announced.

This addresses the Profile Corruption error (the "Freeze bug") and is "highest priority", the company wrote on the Homefront blog.

"We are also including a fix for multiplayer connectivity and ping time issues, where players are being sent to distant server locations at the expense of performance. We expect this update to be submitted to Microsoft really soon and we will be working with them very closely to get this approved and deployed as quickly as possible," THQChris added.

Once that urgent patch has been released, a second update containing a handful of fixes (patch notes below) will be sent to Microsoft for verification. A PS3 version will go to Sony "as soon as the issues are resolved".

On PC there is no certification process required, so when a patch is ready it will be released.

"Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this process," wrote THQ. "We apologise for the inconvenience to your Homefront Multiplayer experience and are working 24/7 to make it as enjoyable as possible!"
