Homeworld and Homeworld 2 receiving HD re-releases

Gearbox has wasted no time in putting its recently acquired Homeworld IP to work.

The Aliens: Colonial Marines dev acquired the IP from former owner THQ in April and has, as reported by Polygon, already announced plans for HD re-releases of both 1999 title Homeworld and its 2003 successor Homeworld 2.

"Gearbox Software has prevailed as the highest bidder in the acquisition of the Homeworld franchise from THQ," a statement from the company released in April read.

"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."
