Gearbox Acquires Homeworld From THQ

GearboxSoftware610

The first news of the THQ intellectual property auction is trickling in. Gearbox has just announced via its forums that they have acquire the Homeworld series.

The following statement was issued, and should give fans of the franchise hope.

Gearbox Software has prevailed as the highest bidder in the acquisition of the Homeworld franchise from THQ. Brian Martel, Gearbox Software’s Chief Creative Officer, has great love and respect for Relic’s brilliant, fun and innovative game and personally spearheaded the acquisition.

Brian intends as first priority to direct Gearbox’s interest to preserve and assemble the purest form of the original acclaimed and beloved games, Homeworld and Homeworld 2, with the intent of making them accessible on today’s leading digital platforms.

Please visit the Gearbox Software Forums to share with us and Brian what you think should be done with Homeworld moving forward. And, please try to get our attention if you have capability and interest to join the effort in developing or enabling Homeworld’s future.

The good news is that the first goal seems to be the preservation and reissuing of the original two real-time strategy classics. Gearbox doesn’t have experience in the genre though, which is likely why they are putting out the call for interested parties to join the project.
