Gearbox Brings It Home
After the speculation around who ultimately acquired the rights to Homeworld since the auction last week. We can now reveal that Gearbox are the high bidders. An official statement has just gone live with their Chief Creative Officer Brian Martel firmly promising:
"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."
Gearbox's reputation took some hits recently, particularly after the Colonial Marines debacle. But I would like to remind everyone what Gearbox can do at their finest as well. Anyone remember Opposing Force? This will doubtless create a huge amount of rumblings in the industry, but I caution patience. Spewing vitriol will only lead to problems. Feel free to leave your thoughts below of course, but keep it civil.
