Homeworld 3 is currently only available for Windows-based PCs. And, as of now, specific information about a console releases for Homeworld 3 is not officially available from the game’s developers.

However, it’s worth noting that previous games in the Homeworld series have seen releases on consoles. For example, the Homeworld: Remastered Collection was eventually released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One after its initial PC launch.

Considering the popularity of consoles and the potential for reaching a wider audience, it’s definitely possible that the developers may consider bringing Homeworld 3 to consoles in the future. Keep an eye on our blog or the CDKeys store for updates.
