HARDWARE: Shipbreakers Becomes Homeworld: Shipbreakers

Gearbox unveils additional plans for their recently aquired Homeworld IP besides the previously announced HD editions of the RTS classics, as Polygon has word from PAX that the company has made a deal with Blackbird interactive to rework HARDWARE: Shipbreakers to be Homeworld: Shipbreakers, which shouldn't be too hard, since Blackbird is composed of Homeworld developers and the game was planned as a spiritual prequel to Homeworld. "These guys have been funded by private equity, but it's clear it was going to take many millions of dollars more," Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said. "We're giving them the brand and the resources to make this happen. Now, these guys are cooking and with the money they have now, they can grow the team."
