Homeworld 3’s launch has been delayed until February 2024

Blackbird Interactive and Gearbox Publishing have confirmed that Homeworld 3 will no longer be releasing in the first half of 2023, with the company confirming that the real-time strategy game will now be releasing in February 2023.

With this delay,  Blackbird Interactive wants to full realise their vision for Homeworld 3 and create a title that can live up to the standards set by the game’s predecessors, both of which are considered RTS classics.

The Homeworld series started in 1999 with the release of Homeworld, which was followed up by its sequel, Homeworld 2, in 2003. The two games were remastered in 2015, reigniting interest in the franchise, and creating demand for a numbered sequel.

Unlike its predecessors, Homeworld 3 will feature an online co-op compatible mode that extends the game beyond its singleplayer campaign. This mode will see one or two commanders take on a randomised series of fleet combat challenges, giving the post-game a roguelike structure.
