So, in light of THQ's bankruptcy, a bunch of properties were auctioned off and Gearbox grabbed the Homeworld franchise and plans to release the games and pursue a re-launch of the franchise. For those of you who don't know what Homeworld is, it's one of the most highly-regarded if not the most highly-regarded space RTS game series so far. It was a staple of the Windows 3D Gaming era back when PC games came in cardboard boxes and digital downloads were one of those things that sounded awesome but just wasn't possible. Anyway, you can expect Homeworld and Homeworld 2 to hit Steam sometime in the future. No word on the Homeworld: Cataclysm expansion that was done by a third-party company but that one might be part of the deal. Anyone else super-excited?
