Hardspace: Shipbreaker Early Access This Summer

Blackbird Interactive announces Hardspace: Shipbreaker as the project they first teased last month. This was actually unveiled late last week, so apologies for spacing on it at the time. The game will be a return to outer space for this studio comprising former members of Homeworld developer Relic Entertainment, who previously gave us Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak and are also working on Homeworld 3. The game is expected to enter Early Access on Steam this summer. They outline their plans in this Steam post which includes an Early Access Reveal Trailer. You can also keep tabs on the project through its official website. Here's word:
Blackbird Interactive, the studio behind Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak and the upcoming Homeworld 3, and Focus Home Interactive are pleased to announce Hardspace: Shipbreaker. With true-to-life physics and demolition effects, a sandbox of creative destruction lies before you this Summer on Steam Early Access.

Early Access will launch with many features to discover, 2 classes of spaceship to salvage, multiple upgradeable salvaging tools and perks, and the first act of the story campaign. Over the course of the Early Access period, we are committed to releasing more spaceship classes, missions, daily challenges, leaderboards, modding support, and much more with the help of the Steam Early Access community.

We identified early in development that we wanted to release Hardspace: Shipbreaker on Early Access. We have a clear vision for what we think the game wants to be but there are still some things we need to figure out and we thought it would be fun to bring in the Early Access community to help us discover these things together. says Trey Smith, Creative Director on Hardspace: Shipbreaker.

We are delighted to bring Blackbird on board the Focus flagship as we continue to invest in new and innovative games that will delight players for years to come. Its also fantastic to be able to reveal this game in full at PAX East 2020, the premiere gaming culture convention running yearly in Boston, Massachusetts. says John Bert, Focus Home Interactive Chief Operating Officer.
