Launch sequence initiated. Blackbird Interactive and Gearbox Publishing announced today that Homeworld 3, the highly anticipated new chapter in the award-winning sci-fi strategy series, is releasing worldwide on PC via Steam® and the Epic Games Store on March 8, 2024. Players can now pre-order Homeworld 3 starting today to experience the best-in-class 3D strategy game. Additionally, pre-ordering the Fleet Command Edition or Collector’s Edition provides the ability to start playing the game early on March 5, 2024.

Homeworld 3 was lauded as the 8th most anticipated PC game of 2024 as determined by a panel of 70 members of the global games industry. Also, during the PC Gaming Show: Most Wanted Showcase, a new behind-the-scenes documentary looking at the making of Homeworld 3 was revealed. Ahead of the documentary’s official release this December, viewers of the digital showcase were treated to a sneak peek at a new trailer for the documentary, which can be viewed here.

Rob Cunningham, CEO of Blackbird Interactive, commented, “Homeworld 3 is a game 20+ years in the making. The team has gone all out to develop the ultimate cinematic sci-fi strategy game our very patient fans deserve. Blackbird Interactive was born to create this game and we can’t wait to get it in the hands of sci-fi lovers and a whole new generation of PC gamers in March of 2024.”

“The Homeworld community has waited actual decades for this launch. We’re thrilled that their wait will finally be rewarded this March as players will be able to command the Mothership and continue their adventures,” said Steve Gibson, President of Gearbox Publishing. “We’re grateful to BBI for their incredible work, and to the players for communicating with us and ultimately trusting us with Homeworld’s legacy. Hopefully they feel that we’ve done it proper justice.”

Additionally, players who pre-order the Fleet Command Edition or Collector’s Edition of Homeworld 3 can experience the full game 72 hours ahead of the global launch.
