Homeworld IP has been sold, buyer not yet revealed19 Apr 2013
Remember teamPixel? They were the group hoping to raise funds through IndieGoGo and Kickstarter for a bid on the Homeworld IP that was up for grabs after THQ’s collapse. Well, those guys didn’t get it. But thanks to an update to their Kickstarter campaign, we know that someone else did.
The update states that teamPixel earned enough money to qualify as a bidder at the auction, but were “were unable to raise the necessary funds to remain competitive against the other parties.” As a result, they will be refunding all the money donated via the various platforms they set up.
So, who does own Homeworld now?
According to teamPixel’s best guess: “We anticipate an announcement of the new owner to be made within a couple weeks and for the sale to be finalized around mid-May.”
Based on that, it shouldn’t be long before we learn who has ownership of the 3D space strategy series.
