Activision is Reviving Sierra, Gamescom 2014 Announcement Teased

By   /   Aug 8, 2014

The classic Sierra name looks to be making a comeback and according to Activision that will happen at Gamescom this month.

The Sierra website has been revived and updated with a brand new logo. Presently the site only contains a tease of an impending announcement and the promise of more information at Gamescom 2014 next week.

Sierra Entertainment was founded in 1979 and later came under the umbrella of Activision. The studio is best known for its adventure games that started a new era in the 80’s, with some proving influential in the history of video games.

The Quest for Glory series for one is still remembered and Activision could drown the Internet by announcing a remastered version of the old games.

Sierra later also published Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, the Dragon games. There was also the Police Quest series that featured a line of SWAT games, one of which I exceptionally remember of having put in countless hours. Those were good times.

In 2003 Sierra published Relic Entertainment’s real-time strategy game Homeworld 2 before shifting to focus on online games. In 2007 it released World in Conflict and Timeshift. However, the company was then shut down after the 2008 merger Activision and Videndi, which owned Sierra at the time.

Activision is looking to revive the name after six years. What exactly are they planning?

Gamescom 2014 will take place next week at Cologne, Germany.
