TeamPixel is now taking steps to refund its 1,318 Kickstarter backers and move ahead with developing their game under an original IP. As for the final fate of the Homeworld license, it is unknown at this time who acquired it at auction. "We anticipate an announcement of the new owner to be made within a couple weeks and for the sale to be finalized around mid-May," says teamPixel. "We hope you will join us in supporting Homeworld's new owners in building a future for the franchise."
While we reached qualified bidder status for the bankruptcy auction, we were unable to raise the necessary funds to remain competitive against the other parties at the auction.
