Homeworld 3 in the Works, Crowdfunding Campaign Live
 

Quote:

Homeworld 3 Brief Overview

Homeworld returns with the next chapter of the story. Homeworld 3 is the true sequel to the legendary space-faring RTS. Blackbird Interactive, founded by original Homeworld art director Rob Cunningham 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.
Further supported by the veterans of Homeworld Remastered Collection at Gearbox Publishing, Homeworld 3 is coming to life and the teams couldn’t be more ecstatic. With our partners at Fig, we can give fans both new and grizzled a chance to fuel and profit from Homeworld 3‘s success.

Read more about the game on Fig.

After all the money Gearbox has made on Homeworld they STILL won't pony up cash for the best HW3 that HW3 can be?

What a joke. And they are crowdfunding on that abomination Fig? Another joke. The next joke is this is separate from Gearbox. Not likely that separate, if so it is more for plausible deniability.

If this goes on too long the jokes will keep coming and we'll have one of those Netflix stand-up comedy specials here, and not one the funny Dave Chappelle ones. Nope, it'll be one of the bad comedy specials like the Amy Schumer one where the performer gets paid a billion bucks but they are the only one laughing at the jokes.

Except this time the performer is Randy Pitchford and the last joke is him walking to the bank cashing FIG Crowd Funding checks OVER THE HUSKS OF DEAD WITHERED EMPLOYEES WHO HE SUCKED DRY SO HE DIDN'T HAVE TO PAY THEM THEIR ROYALTIES BECAUSE HE NEEDED THE MONEY TO BUY TEEN PORN AND THE SECRETS TO PENN AND TELLER MAGIC TRICKS!

EDIT: Also, watching the video, there is a SHOCKING lack of diversity in that studio! SHOCKING! And at the end when the guy starts checking off names of all the great people who are going to be helping make the game it is ALL MALE NAMES! Like they may be presenting as female since it's Vancouver and all but still. If you back this on Fig and give them money Gearbox is clearly withholding for a robust feature set, make sure Diversity hiring is #1 on your list.

Someone post a reaction gif of a man spitting out his drink in surprise, please.

What a disgrace.

This is just a pre-order. It's not really crowdfunding, it's asking for pre-orders. It will also most likely be an exclusive for Epic. Overall, not the best news.

not supporting anything on FIG - what a shady ass scheme

Also not support *ANYTHING* that has Gearbox or Randy Pitchfords disgusting claws on it.

Only videogame environment in the blackness of space I really care about - they better not mess this up.

Pretty much this. I wouldn't ever support anything related to Gearbox at this point. My plan is to buy a used copy of Borderlands 3 off eBay a few months after launch so they don't get a dime of my money.

Wait for the GOTY edition on ebay if you want the whole game ;)
