Homeworld 3, which has been eagerly anticipated by fans, will not be released in February 2024 as planned. Originally targeting a Q4 2022 release, the game was then postponed to the first half of 2023, and finally to early 2024. However, the good news is that the latest delay is only a small one, with the release now set for March 8.
Rob Cunningham, CEO of Blackbird Interactive, expressed his enthusiasm for the long-anticipated sci-fi strategy game that has been more than 20 years in the making. He assured fans that the team had gone all out to develop the ultimate cinematic sci-fi strategy game that fans deserve. Cunningham noted that Blackbird Interactive was created to make this game and is excited to get it into the hands of sci-fi lovers and a new generation of PC gamers in March 2024.
Steve Gibson, President of Gearbox Publishing, also expressed his excitement for the upcoming release. He acknowledged the decades-long wait of the Homeworld community and emphasized their thrill in finally rewarding the players’ patience. Gibson expressed his gratitude to Blackbird Interactive for their incredible work and thanked the players for communicating and ultimately trusting them with Homeworld’s legacy.
In a recent announcement, Blackbird Interactive revealed the system requirements for Homeworld 3 and confirmed that the game would feature ray tracing, HDR, NVIDIA DLSS 3, and AMD FSR 2 support.
Fans can also look forward to a behind-the-scenes documentary, to be released in December, which will provide a glimpse into the making of Homeworld 3.
