Gearbox Promises HD Remakes of Homeworld and Homeworld 2, Original Versions Heading to Digital Distribution

During a panel at PAX Australia Gearbox Software just announced something that will make veteran PC gamers quite happy: the company is planning to release high definition remakes of the classic PC RTS titles Homeworld and Homeworld 2.

In addition to that, the original versions of both games will soon be made available on digital distribution platforms.

Gearbox purchased the Homeworld IP for $1,350,000 after the premature death of the previous publisher THQ, while PC gamers have been waiting for a continuation of the popular series since the release of Homeworld 2 in 2003, and that’s probably the next step after the return of the first two chapters.

Looks like Homeworld‘s fantastic space battles are going to make a comeback soon. Hallelujah!
