I hope Homeworld 3 doesn’t experience as many delays as Ubisoft’s Skull & Bones, as another delay has been announced. Originally slated for launch in the first half of 2023, Homeworld 3 announced its first delay in May 2023, stating the game would now launch in February 2024. Before the end of the 2023, Blackbird Interactive and Gearbox Publishing gave the game another slight delay to March 8, 2024. Now, as people are able to check out the Homeworld 3 War Games Demo during Steam Next Fest, another delay has been confirmed. Currently, Homeworld 3 has a new release date of May 13, with advanced access beginning on May 10.

Along with the feedback the team has received from the War Games Demo, it also allowed a “dedicated group of players” to play through the full game. The insights and perspectives from these players are now being incorporated into Homeworld 3 to create the best experience possible. After analyzing the feedback, the team decided to delay the launch once again.

Despite this recent delay, I’m still looking forward to playing Homeworld 3, as it’s one of my most anticipated games of 2024. Honestly, I’m a little glad it’s being moved to May, since February and March is already crowded with new releases.

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.
