Relic Teases Homeworld 3

By Chris Faylor, Nov 24, 2008 10:25am PST Investigating a fabled third entry in Relic Entertainment's sci-fi RTS series Homeworld, Eurogamer came up with some curious answers from senior staff members.

The THQ-owned studio is known to have three games in development--Dawn of War II, Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor, and the Asian-geared Company of Heroes Online with developer Shanda--and acquired the Homeworld IP from Vivendi last year.

"[Homeworld 3 is] as it always has--behind closed doors. Blacked off," Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor designer Chris Degnan responded when asked of the mythical project. "Homeworld 3, obviously, I'm not at liberty to tell you anything about."

"We're really happy the IP has made its way home, and yeah, we're definitely looking at it. We'll see what happens in the future," Dawn of War II lead designer Jonny Ebbert said. Upon further inquiry, Ebbert noted "there's always that chance" that Homeworld 3 could be among the studio's current projects.

General manager Tarrnie Williams revealed that the studio has "three or four" titles in the works, saying that "it depends how you count; whether you use the old math or the new math." He refused to specify the difference between old math or new math.
