Fans will now have to wait until the first half of 2023 to get their hands on Homeworld 3, the upcoming revival of the cosmic real-time strategy series.
Gearbox Publishing and Blackbird Interactive announced that they would be delaying the game “to make good on our commitment to quality in a healthy and sustainable way for all those involved” via a Tweet today.
News about the upcoming title isn’t far out, however, and the studio reassured players that they’ll get a closer look at the game during Gamescom 2022.
“Blackbird Interactive is building the Homeworld game that players have always dreamed of and we are excited to share the deepest look yet at Homeworld 3 during gamescom later this summer,” the Tweet reads.
The follow-up to the strategy series will now be arriving twenty years after its last entry, Homeworld 2. We gave Homeworld 2 a 9 out of 10 and praised its improvements to the mold of its predecessor. While great, the sequel didn’t quite live up to the excitement of Homeworld 1, which we deemed “the best game of the year” in 1999.
