Surprising absolutely nobody - I've got money on these being the only releases the series' new owners ever bother with - Gearbox announced over the weekend it will be releasing HD upgrades to both Homeworld and Homeworld 2.

If you only want to play the originals - and you might, because time has been very kind to them - well, good news, Gearbox will be releasing them as well, making them available on platforms like Steam for the first time.

Sadly, seems there was no mention of Homeworld: Cataclysm, the overblown expansion that this crazy old series veteran thinks was the best game of the bunch.
