Homeworld's For Sale, And Supreme Commander Too

When Sega plucked Relic from the ashes of THQ last month, it appears they didn’t get the Homeworld license along with it. So for now the sublime space RTS series remains without a home, in an odd case of life imitating art. The Homeworld IP is now up for sale in an auction of THQ’s remaining stuff – as is the likes of Supreme Commander, Red Faction, Darksiders, Titan Quest, Full Spectrum Warrior and a whole host of names known and forgotten.

It’s a sad business, and while I’m sometimes no fan of sequel culture, the concept of some of these once-great names simply ceasing to be is not a happy one. Hopefully non-exploitative, non-cynical buyers can be found for the main stuff. Wouldn’t it be nice (and not exactly implausible, given the publisher’s increasing PC-focus) if Sega did scoop up Homeworld, and reunite it with its creators? Or perhaps Gas Powered Games’ new owners Wargaming.net could salvage SupCom.

We’ll find out the fate of these names, all being well, in May. Highest bidder for each of the below lots takes ’em home. If you are a rich person or company interested in acquiring any of ’em, you’ve got until the first of April to declare your intentions and proffered monies to auction@thq.com.

Here’s the complete list of what’s up for sale. Godspeed, brave videogame franchises.
