Gearbox Software Is Making Homeworld 3; Seeks Funds Through Crowdfunding

Gearbox Software Is Making Homeworld 3; Seeks Funds Through Crowdfunding”

Gearbox Studios took to the stage yesterday at PAX West 2019 to share some exciting news, gameplay, and more before hitting our Borderlands 3 party!

In addition to the new title, Kotaku reports that the publishers and developers will be crowdfunding the new sequel through Fig. Pledgers will gain investor status as well as the ability to provide feedback throughout the development of the game.

You might be surprised (or not) to find out that Homeworld 3 has already reached its funding goal.

"Homeworld 3 is the last word in epic space combat". Its publishing arm has teamed up with Blackbird Interactive, which developed 2016's Homeworld sequel Deserts of Kharak, to deliver the game, which is now in pre-production.

"This is your chance to tell us what you expect of Homeworld 3, including its features, priorities, and even what the collector's edition will include". There are, of course, certain perks to each package.

It's actually happening. Long after becoming an in-joke/pipe dream for aging PC gamers, Homeworld 3 is a thing that will be coming to computer shelves sooner or later.

Rob Cunningham, CEO of Blackbird, said the new game "will capture the atmosphere and tones of Homeworld" and will do so by meeting the needs and expectations of the fans. The campaign will run only for a month.

Interestingly, the game will involve a partnership with Fig to enable investment from fans.

Homeworld first released in 1999 as an RTS from Relic Entertainment.

The Homeworld series was one of the intellectual properties that Gearbox acquired from THQ during its bankruptcy auction in 2013.

Watch Homeworld 3's Fig campaign trailer below, and don't forget to keep an eye out for the game in a few years when it launches in Q4 of 2022.
