We found out last week that teamPixel didn't win the bid of the Homeworld franchise in the THQ bankruptcy auction and today it has been revealed that Gearbox Software was the winning bidder, with the company's chief creative officer Brian Martel spearheading the acquisition.
They explained the reasoning for the purchase, "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."
Gearbox has already opened up its fan forums to discuss Homeworld 3 and what they want to see done with the franchise. It would be great if Gearbox adapted the previous titles and brought them up to date but for now we wait in the midst of what Homeworld 3 will offer.
The bid won't become official until approved by the court on May 13, but a rejection appears unlikely. According to a release, Gearbox paid $1.35 million for the series.
