Homeworld 3 set for 2022 release
Sci-Fi RTS plans to return late next year
Gearbox Publishing and developer Blackbird Interactive have confirmed that Homeworld 3 is planned for launch in Q4 2022.
First announced in 2019, Homeworld 3 is a new and standalone game in the Homeworld series, continuing the story generations after the events of Homeworld 2. Homeworld 3’s campaign is set in a galaxy that has enjoyed an age of abundance thanks to the Hyperspace Gate Network, with the cycles of peace and war having come and gone. The gates themselves are now catastrophically failing and Karan, who has passed into myth and religious idolatry, is the key to the mystery threatening the entire galaxy’s future.
The strategic gameplay also returns at an even larger scale as players engage in battles fought across open space as well as the 3D terrain of hulking space derelicts called megaliths — the crumbling remains of an ancient civilization. Fully simulated ballistics make line of sight and cover critical strategic considerations. Scars on your ships linger. Strike craft pilots and capital ship captains pass along critical information through battlefield chatter.
In addition to the solo campaign, players can challenge each other to 1v1, free-for-all or team battles, or tag team in an all-new co-op mode with a roguelike twist.
Homeworld 3 is planned to release on PC.
