Have you guys seen this stupid kickstarter.
A small indie company proposing to get the money from kickstarter to bid on the franchise. As far as i can tell they have no big game dev experience, and their suggestions to bring them to mobile platforms and use unity for all of it, even a full homeworld 3 (i don't even think its possible to make a good control scheme for it on a tablet.).
I'm sorry who are these clowns and why are people giving them money to potentially ruin my favorite game series?
Luckily i don't think they will be successful in the bid despite the kick starter almost being funded(they better not be... heads will roll otherwise). There is also a lot of talk about it being a scam, which wouldn't surprise me.
