Homeworld was a space RTS. And you might remember (I just found this out myself) that Gearbox bought out the Homeworld IP in April.
They were saying things like “we are making them accessible on today’s leading digital platforms.”
Well, apparently translated, that means HD remake.
Announced at Penny Arcade Expo in the land down under (Australia), Gearbox said that both Homeworld 1 and 2 will be given the HD licks of paint–also the expansion, Homeworld: Cataclysm will also be given some caring touches.
Also the original games will be released in digital platforms soon.
Gearbox has not said anything about whether or not this will just be a new paint job, or if they will be fixing any bugs, or improving AI.
Homeworld was originally made by Relic Entertainment.
The IP was picked up for the ‘bargain’ price of $1.35 million. Gearbox’s Chief Creative Officer Brian Martel has said that they “personally spearheaded the acquisition” of Homeworld.
What do you think of this?
