Somebody Bought Homeworld, But Who?


An update to the Homeworld Touch and Homeworld 3 Kickstarter announces that the teamPixel bid to obtain the Homeworld IP has failed. They explain: "The auction for the Homeworld license ended April 15, 2013, and while we reached qualified bidder status for the bankruptcy auction, we were unable to raise the necessary funds to remain competitive against the other parties at the auction." teamPixel will be offering refunds, and starting their own space game. We don't know who got the license. It wasn't Paradox or Stardock, although they were both bidding.

Word on the street internet is that we might find out later today, or alternatively not until mid-May. We'll update when we know something. (Presumably it wasn't RPS-chum Robert Yang.)
