It is a very special and rare thing to see a project so close to your heart not only get re-released, but remastered with such loving care and attention.
said Rob Cunningham, who co-founded Relic Entertainment and served as the original art director of Homeworld.
The Homeworld series has a long legacy and is regarded by many as one of the best strategy series of all time. Following its release in 1999 by publisher Sierra and developer Relic Entertainment, Homeworld received several Game of the Year awards and redefined the RTS genre. Its sequel, Homeworld 2, launched in 2003, and was similarly praised by critics for its innovative controls and changes to multiplayer. Brian Martel, Gearbox Software’s Chief Creative Officer, has great love and respect for Relic’s brilliant, fun and innovative franchise and personally spearheaded Gearbox Software’s acquisition of Homeworld from THQ in 2013.
The Homeworld Remastered Collection launches on February 25 2015.
