Homeworld: Shipbreakers announced, turns spiritual successor into official sequel

Given how much Gearbox wanted the Homeworld IP, it should be unsurprising that the studio would want to create a new game in the series. In addition to the HD remakes of the first two games, Gearbox will be making a new game called Homeworld: Shipbreakers, developed in conjunction with Blackbird Interactive.

If the name sounds familiar, that's because the game was formally known as Hardware: Shipbreakers, a spiritual successor to Homeworld made by many of the original's former developers. For fans, perhaps there can be no better news: the franchise has been reunited with its creators, and a new game that can officially don the Homeworld name is coming.
