Homeworld 3 was initially supposed to launch in the fourth quarter of 2022 before being delayed to the first half of 2023. This marks the second Homeworld 3 delay since its reveal.

Publisher Gearbox Software then goes on to explain that Homeworld 3 is coming along nicely and thanks the fans for their dedication to the series. "We are working hard to get Homeworld 3 to you as soon as we can."

Homeworld 3 was first announced at PAX West 2019 as part of the series' 20th anniversary. It's a space RTS that will supposedly include a robust campaign mode with an emphasis on the single-player experience. It will also include a co-op mode that features roguelike elements.

"Homeworld 3 will be a true sequel to the legendary space-faring RTS. Blackbird Interactive takes the helm on development, returning the series to its roots with a gripping continuation of the story, fully 3D combat, and the classic RTS elements you expect," reads a portion of the game's description on the publisher's website.
