A Change in Trajectory
Gearbox Publishing and Blackbird Interactive have officially announced a shift in the launch schedule for the much-anticipated Homeworld 3, now set for a global release on May 13, 2024. This adjustment pushes back the original launch date from March 8, providing the developers with additional time to polish the game to perfection. For the dedicated commanders who have secured their Fleet Command Edition or Collector’s Edition, an early access opportunity will be available from May 10, 2024, offering a head start on the interstellar journey.
Hello, Commanders –
We hope you all have been enjoying your first-time going hands-on with Homeworld 3 during our public demo of War Games.
Watching you share your experiences, exchange and debate strategies, and give us constant feedback has been incredible. This was our first time seeing the game played at scale, which is always an equally thrilling and nerve-wracking moment.
We also recently gathered a dedicated group of players from outside our organizations to play through the full game. This resulted in additional insights and perspective that will be incorporated to make Homeworld 3 the best experience possible.
After careful analysis of feedback, we made the decision to delay the global launch of Homeworld 3 until May 13, with advanced access set for May 10, to ensure that we’re making the final tweaks needed to deliver at the level of quality that we strive for and you deserve.
To say that you as a community of players have been waiting patiently for this next installment would be an understatement, and we are deeply appreciative of that. We will continue to keep you updated on our progress.
As always, you’re welcome to send your feedback via social channels, the Homeworld Universe Discord, and through our support page.
Thank you all for playing, and we’ll talk again soon –
Gearbox and BBI

A select group of players also had the chance to play through the entire game, providing valuable perspectives that are now being integrated to enhance the final product.
A Commitment to Excellence
In a statement, the teams behind Homeworld 3 have shared their reasons for the delay, emphasizing their commitment to delivering a game that meets the high standards of quality they set for themselves and that the players rightfully expect. The additional time until May will be used to implement final adjustments and ensure that Homeworld 3 not only meets but exceeds community expectations.
As the new launch date approaches, Gearbox Publishing and Blackbird Interactive promise to keep the lines of communication open, encouraging players to continue sharing their feedback through social channels, the Homeworld Universe Discord, and the official support page.
