Gearbox Software—the developers behind Borderlands—announced their acquisition of the Homeworld IP on their official website.
teamPixel recently revealed they were outbid on the intellectual property during THQ’s second bankruptcy auction by an unnamed third party—which, it seems, turns out to be Gearbox.
A post on the Gearbox Community page details CEO Brian Martel’s “great love and respect” for the franchise.
“Brian [Martel] 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,” the post reads.
The original Homeworld, a real-time strategy game, debuted on Windows PC in 1999. A sequel, Homeworld 2, was released on PC and OS X in 2003.
