The Gearbox panel at PAX West announced Homeworld 3, but that’s not the only return for the real-time strategy franchise. The company also teased Homeworld Mobile, complete with a brief teaser-trailer showing off the spacefaring ships in flight.
The spin-off is being developed by mobile studio Straosphere. Gearbox noted that the title isn’t finalized, because like Homeworld 3, it’s still in the early stages. If you back Homeworld 3’s crowd-funding campaign on Fig, you’ll get priority access to Homeworld Mobile.
Homeworld has been relatively quiet since the release of Homeworld 2 in 2003. It received a Remastered Collection in 2015, which was well-received by critics, including in GameSpot’s Homeworld Remastered review.
“The Homeworld series’ legacy, however, has always lain within its story-focused campaigns, whose excellent action and inherent beauty endure and excel, even in light of the 16 years that have passed since the original’s arrival,” wrote Kevin VanOrd. “It is a huge universe out there, but Homeworld Remastered Collection makes a great case for asserting your presence within it.”
