Homeworld 2 on PCJonny Ebbert, Dawn of War II lead designer at developer Relic, dropped a huge hint Homeworld 3 might already be in development when he was recently interviewed about the company doing another Homeworld RTS sequel for PC.

To quote him: “We’re really happy the IP has made its way home, and yeah, we’re definitely looking at it. We’ll see what happens in the future.” When asked whether it was one of the studio’s current projects, Mr. Ebbert said: “There’s always that chance.” And when pressed if they were excited about showing it to the world, he chuckled: “Yes, very, very!” Mr. Ebbert closed off by saying: “Homeworld’s always been dear to our heart; it’s what put us on the map, it was our first product, and I think it will always have a special place in our hearts.”

Three announced games are in development at the THQ-owned Relic: Dawn of War II, Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor and Company of Heroes Online, being co-developed with Shanda for the Asian market. General manager Tarrnie Williams admitted there were “three or four” titles in the works at Relic. “It depends how you count; whether you use the old math or the new math.” He declined to explain the difference.
