I think I remember hearing that Gearbox is funding the basic project and this extra funding I guess is too really give the fans what they want. The developers must know the funding that was given for the effort could not achieve the best results for the fans so they are asking for more to hopefully put out a quality sequel.
Gearbox is really taking a risk in a way. Most of the gamers today don’t even know what Homeworld is so they are going to have to make it epic to get the attention deficit gamers of today to play it 🙂
So lets see what 2022 brings us, will it be worth the wait?
