The original Homeworld was developed by Relic Entertainment and launched in September of 1999 to critical success, winning over 50 Game of the Year awards and was credited with popularizing the 3D real-time strategy genre. Homeworld Remastered Collection, consisting of the original Homeworld and Homeworld 2, was released more than a decade later, reviving the franchise for series fans and newcomers alike. Blackbird Interactive was founded in 2010 by former members of the Relic Entertainment Homeworld team, including Art Director Rob Cunningham and Lead artist Aaron Kambeitz. After its founding, BBI began working on a game they considered the spiritual successor to Homeworld, and then partnered with Gearbox (the now IP holder and game publisher) to release Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak.
