As we reported earlier, Gearbox Publishing had some great news for us at PAX West over the weekend. Aside from revealing Homeworld 3 for PC, a mobile version temporarily titled Homeworld Mobile was also announced. Check out a trailer for the game below:

In case you are not familiar with the name ‘Homeworld’, it is a classic real-time strategy series that was originally released in 1999 by Relic Entertainment. The game stood out at its time thanks to its 3D graphics and a 16-level singleplayer campaign featuring large scale battles. A standalone expansion titled Homeworld: Cataclysm then came along in 2000, followed by a sequel, Homeworld 2 – which continued the story of the original and brought back all the action-packed fleet battles.

The original Homeworld was praised for its magnificent fleet battles

The franchise then stayed relatively quiet until 2013, where Gearbox bought the rights to the IP and began making a remastered version for modern PCs, which went on to be released in 2015 and included the classic and updated versions of Homeworld and Homeworld 2. However, Homeworld: Cataclysm wasn’t included in this Remastered Collection at the time as Blizzard had copyrighted the name “Cataclysm” for the third expansion of its hit MMORPG World of Warcraft. It was not until 2017 that it arrived on GOG under the new name Homeworld: Emergence.

Homeworld Mobile
Homeworld Mobile is looking quite promising so far

In any case, Homeworld Mobile aims to extend Homeworld to a brand new galaxy and platform. Not a lot of details about this upcoming game is available at the moment, but judging from the trailer above, the graphics look quite promising, so this is a game we’ll be keeping an eye out for. It is not confirmed whether the game will be available on Android or iOS, but we can expect it to make an appearance on both.
