All I have wanted since Homeworld 2 is freaking Homeworld 3. I hate Relic for never making another after THQ finally got the IP back. And I hate all these other companies for just letting the IP sit there and rot.

Like someone else said, it's a real bummer that billions go into making and marketing the same FPS games every year but no one will spare 10mil for Homeworld.

Oh well, there's always Kickstarter I remember there was a Kickstarter thingie trying to acquire the Homeworld IP, not sure what happened with it though.

The problem is that Homeworld 3 will cost $10m and that's almost impossible with kickstarter.

I'm pretty sure I've seen people asking before, but why are people so attached to the Homeworld IP? I thought the story was reasonably good, but there's no reason to spend millions of dollars on a reasonably good story. If you just make a 3D RTS with spaceships and call it a spiritual successor, are people really not going to get on board unless it's got the same mothership and Hiigara and everything again? Homeworld 2 didn't really end on a cliffhanger like Freespace 2, so I don't see the reason not to keep the mechanics and start over.

if someone else would take the same Mothership approach, complete with being able to warp your fleet, EVERYTHING, and make a non Homeworld game out of it, I'd play it. The problem is no one will, and that is why it is sad Relic never started up a Homeworld 3, theres no hope for it being done right without them is what I fear.

I guess I'll just keep playing Sins. Close, but not really, but still fun. *shrug*
