As the proud new owners of the Homeworld IP, Gearbox' first move has been to officially confirm HD remakes of the two classic space strategy games. They're headed to PC, as reported by Polygon who attended their PAX AU panel.
The acquisition was one of the biggest surprises of the THQ bankruptcy feeding frenzy, since original developers Relic ended up at SEGA who didn't defend the IP. Gearbox creative director Brian Martel is a massive fan of the series and promises to treat the property with respect. As far as we're concerned, HD remakes are a very good start.
