Homeworld 3 is available on PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store), but what about consoles? Here’s all you need to know about the iconic sci-fi RTS’ availability on platforms like PlayStation and Xbox. 

Consoles haven’t really been a popular home for the RTS genre, as it has historically been a PC favorite. True to the earlier games in the series, Homeworld 3 is another classic real-time strategy entry with a neat Rouglike addition in War Games and extensive post-launch support.

If you’re wondering whether Homeworld 3 changes the course of the genre and will be available on consoles, including the Nintendo Switch, here’s all you need to know. 

Is Homeworld 3 coming to PlayStation and Xbox? 

No, Homeworld 3 will not be available on PlayStation and Xbox when it launches on May 13.

Blackbird Interactive have not shared any details on its potential arrival for consoles. Past mainline entries in the series were also exclusive to PC, so it is unlikely Homeworld 3 will get a console port, at least not on launch. 

RTS games, especially 3D ones like Homeworld, are best played with on mouse and keyboard, and it’ll be quite a task to play on a controller. With all of the interfaces and quick real-time inputs you’ll have to do, the game will be more or less unplayable in its current state.

Of course, if there is any news on the console version of Homeworld 3, we’ll update you.  

Is Homeworld 3 coming to Nintendo Switch? 

No, Homeworld 3 is not available for the Nintendo Switch, and Blackbird Interactive have not hinted at any potential Switch port either. 

Given that the PlayStation and Xbox port itself is a big question mark, it is unlikely we’ll get a Nintendo Switch port. 

We’ll keep you posted if there are any announcements on the same. Until then, for more on the other biggest blockbusters coming later, check out:
