Homeworld 3 Delayed To 2024
The RTS from Blackbird and Gearbox will no longer launch within the first half of 2023.
The real-time strategy game Homeworld 3 has been delayed to February 2024. This comes by way of the game's official Twitter account, which explained that its developer Blackbird Interactive needs more time for polish.
"Our primary goal is to deliver a Homeworld experience that lives up to the standards set by its predecessors and is worthy of the series' incredible legacy," reads an excerpt from the tweet.
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.
