Blackbird Interactive is able to use the IP for Homeworld, thanks to the generosity and receptiveness of Gearbox. Now the original creatives are going to have their IP back and make new games. Homeworld has come home.
But I'm a little sad to see Hardware go. This fresh new universe was shaping up to be a worthy successor to Homeworld but give a fresh, new direction. I hope too much of Hardware isn't recycled for Homeworld, because the Hardware IP was pretty neat.
So, a little bittersweet, but how can I say no to more Homeworld?
And I guess this means I should get back to working on the latest version of the map shouldn't I?
