Sci-fi real-time approach game Homeworld 3 will certainly be launched on March 8, 2024, designer Blackbird Interactive and author Gearbox have actually introduced — over two decades after its precursor, Homeworld 2, appeared.
The launch day is simply a little later than the February day established when Homeworld 3 was delayed in very early 2023.
