Homeworld 3 Announced for Franchise’s 20th Anniversary

Homeworld 3 was revealed at the Gearbox Presentation during PAX West 2019, 20 years after the last title in the series. A Fig campaign has also been revealed, and the game will be a true sequel to the legendary space-faring RTS. Blackbird Interactive aim to return the series to its roots, with a continuation of the Homeworld story.

The project is in its early stages with only a few months into pre-production. The campaign will allow longtime Homeworld fans to become investors in Fig and participate in the game’s future success. Additionally, investments and pledges will provide a chance to tell the developers what they expect of Homeworld 3 via a backer-only survey. This survey would include things such as its features, priorities, and even what the collector’s edition will include. More information for the Fig campaign can be found here.

Rob Cunningham, CEO of BBI discussed Homeworld 3:

“Homeworld 3 is the last word in epic space combat. It will capture the mood and tone of Homeworld and deliver it in an exactly expected and juicy, lovely way. There will be an extension of the story that’s totally satisfying with some interesting twists and turns, and locations that I think will blow some minds and resonate with existing fans and new fans alike.”
