Homeworld Series in Uncertain hands with gearbox

There was news recently about the last of THQ’s intellectual properties finally being auctioned off, with a list of the publishers and studios that walked away with their new prizes in hand. One of the smaller, cult/fan favourite IPs was Homeworld, a franchise that holds a place in many top 10 lists of real time strategy games. There had been hopes that Sega—who now owns Relic, the original creators—would buy up the right. There was also TeamPixel, the little indies that could, that tried to start a Kickstarter fund to acquire the rights to the IP. Instead, when the dust settled, the victor that walked away with the rights to Homeworld was Gearbox. If the old adage “You’re only as good as your last project” is any indication, then Gearbox, with disappointing release of Aliens: Colonial Marines bears bad tidings for the future of the Homeworld franchise.
