Relicnews: the definitive source for all things Relic

The History of Relicnews

The history of Relicnews spans over 9 years. It all started in 1998. Homeworld had recently been revealed and two sites popped up on the Internet dedicated to Homeworld.

The first one, Seeking Homeworld, was run by Fireflight. One might say it was the first Homeworld fansite out there. The second site was JP5 (Jump Point 5), it was also dedicated to Homeworld and was run by both Pax and Pike.

The Homeworld community at this time was quite small and news was sparse. Shortly the webmasters of both sites realised that there was no point in competition, and that what would serve the community best was one single site, that would provide all the latest news and information on Homeworld. This site was formed in a few short days, combining the best information from SH and JP5. This site was called Homeworld.org.

As Homeworld.org grew so did the Homeworld community. Homeworld was released, and the Homeworld community continued to grow.

It soon became apparent to the webmasters at Homeworld.org that Relic Entertainment was one of those studios that would keep pushing the bounds of gaming, and so it was decided that Homeworld.org would become Relicnews.

And so it did.
