Bidding in the second THQ auction concluded last week and most of the publisher’s remaining intellectual property will find new homes soon. One such property is the real-time strategy series Homeworld, which has been acquired by Gearbox Software.
In the announcement, Gearbox revealed that the Homeworld series is a favorite of Brian Martel, the company’s Chief Creative Officer. Plans for the future of the franchise are still up in the air, but Martel has promised that Gearbox is already in the process of making Homeworld and Homeworld 2 available on leading digital platforms soon.
The company is also actively recruiting new talent to work on their latest acquisition, closing the press release with this news: “[P]lease try to get our attention if you have capability and interest to join the effort in developing or enabling Homeworld’s future.”
