Like in said in the other topic. Stardock would be foolish to pass up on this opportunity. I do not want to think of what a company like EA would do to the franchise.
However, Kamamura does have a point. Just because you got the IP license, and plan on making a new installment isn't going to bring back what made the game great.
What i would do if i acquired the IP is to remake the original games, and combine them into a set (Call it "Super Homeworld"). All in a unaltered state as far as game play is concerned. Gameplay would remain exactly as it is now for each game, but the games would be built on a new 64 bit engine, Focusing on much higher detail ships, and effects.
This new engine would be used for the next installment (improved upon of course). Under the condition of those who worked on the original Homeworld would be involved in the project. Even if as just advisers.
