Posted in General, Homeworld by on November 3rd, 2007

edit: 11/6/07, Elukka on IRC pointed out a link on Ars Technica where a THQ official confirms this. Check it out “here!”:http://arstechnica.com/journals/thumbs.ars/2007/11/06/thq-confirms-ownership-of-the-homeworld-brand

A look at the US Patent Office reveals that Homeworld IP was transferred from Sierra to THQ a while ago. There was a change of attorneys as shown on the documents list found “here”:http://portal.uspto.gov/external/portal/tow?SRCH=Y&isSubmitted=true&details=&SELECT=US+Serial+No&TEXT=74499006# . Click on “TEAS Revoke Appointed Attorney” to look the document.

A thread can be found “here”:http://forums.relicnews.com/showthread.php?t=169611 regarding this news.

Certainly a long time coming. Though it was “unofficially hinted”:http://forums.relicnews.com/showpost.php?p=2184963&postcount=12, we’re glad to see THQ officially acknowledges this.
