Check your email for more information, if you pledged.

If you pledged to the TeamPixel Kickstarter to raise funds for the team to buy the rights to Homeworld, then there’s some bad news for you this morning I’m afraid: the auction for the rights was won by somebody else.
TeamPixel revealed in a Kickstarter update that the auction had come and gone and they had failed to secure the rights, and would be refunding the money. You can expect an email about this soon.
They will still be moving ahead with developing their own Homeworld-inspired RTS, but it’ll be an original property now and not an official sequel. There’s no word on who the buyer of the IP was at the end of the auction, though hopefully this will be revealed soon.
Meanwhile, former Homeworld developers are releasing their own sci-fi RTS, which is looking kinda cool.
