Gearbox Software announced at PAX Australia that they will be creating HD remakes of Homeworld and Homeworld 2. Polygon reports that Gearbox intends to also release the original real-time space strategy games through digital distribution outlets for PC.
Gearbox purchased the rights to the Homeworld IP license during the THQ asset auction in April. After the acquisition, Gearbox stated on their site that the purchase was largely motivated by the love Chief Creative Officer Brian Martel had for the property.
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.
You can get the Yes song Homeworld (The Ladder) from the first game’s soundtrack on Amazon if you can’t wait to groove to some spacey jams right now.
