Following earlier reports of financial trouble at Crysis and CryEngine creators Crytek, Kotaku is now reporting that employees of Crytek UK -- the Nottingham-based studio currently tasked with the development of Homefront: The Revolution -- have walked out due to unpaid salaries, reportedly handing in formal grievance letters and going home.

Citing two anonymous sources "connected to the studio", Kotaku claims that "around 100 people have left", but notes that its unclear whether they are permanent resignations or temporary work strikers.

As the licensed publisher of Homefront: The Revolution, Deep Silver is said to be negotiating a potential purchase of Crytek UK for continued development, but neither Deep Silver or Crytek have officially mentioned anything regarding the whole ordeal.

It's been a rocky ride for the Homefront series and everyone involved. The first Homefront game was developed by New York-based Kaos Studios, which was shuttered shortly after the game's completion by embattled publisher THQ, which didn't last much longer itself. Crytek UK was established when Crytek purchased Free Radical, the defunct developer of the acclaimed Timesplitters series, and tasked with Homefront: The Revolution, which Crytek had acquired during THQ's bankruptcy proceedings.
