After THQ went under, Gearbox picked up the Homeworld IP in an auction that was held. Would this mean that a new Homeworld would be coming from the studio? Looks like not yet.
IGN has reported at a PAX Australia panel
, Gearbox announced HD remakes of Homeworld
and Homeworld 2
. While we aren't getting a brand new game, we'll hopefully get a much prettier version of an already visually appealing space combat game.
Now, I know a lot of people are clamoring for a brand new game in the series, at least we're getting some Homeworld love in these HD remakes. I know Gearbox has their work cut out for them when they make a new game in the series. These HD remakes should give them a little experience in making these types of games and hopefully will translate to getting us a solid third Homeworld game when the time comes.
