When Gearbox announced it had picked up the rights to Homeworld, fans weren’t sure what to expect. Now we know: A polished, revamped version of the original game is on the way. Homeworld HD was officially announced at PAX Australia over the weekend, and while details are still sketchy, gamers are getting a bit excited.
During the studio’s panel, bossman Randy Pitchford claimed the Homeworld acquisition was largely due to one man: Gearbox Vice President Brian Martel, who took to Twitter to update international fans on the announcement.
I might have just announced Homeworld HD in Australia at PAX AUS.
But this isn’t the only plan Gearbox has for the franchise! The original two games – 15-year old Homeworld and sequel Homeworld 2 will also see a new lease on life. Both games will be released digitally via Steam, the first time they’ve appeared on a digital distribution service.
