One of the most unlikely software companies has acquired the classic real-time strategy license for Homeworld: Borderlands 2 developer Gearbox Software.
The IP was acquired when THQ auctioned off its assets in a literal "going out of business sale".
According to Gearbox COO Brian Martel, “Gearbox Software has prevailed as the highest bidder in the acquisition of the Homeworld franchise from THQ."
Will Relic be involved in the next Homeworld title? That remains to be seen.
