Activision has announced the revival of the Sierra label, with new games in development for the King’s Quest and Geometry Wars franchises.
Sierra will re-release old studio classics and collaborate with indie studios to create “innovative, edgy and graphically unique” titles. The games will be published digitally for PlayStation Network, Steam and Xbox Live.
Kicking off Sierra’s revival will be Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions from Lucid Games, and a new King’s Quest from The Odd Gentlemen which will launch in 2015.
“We’re very proud of what we created all those years ago with Sierra Online, and today’s news about carrying Sierra forward as an indie-specific brand is very encouraging,” Sierra founder Ken Williams said in a statement, in part.
“Sierra’s goal is to find and work with gifted up-and-coming indie developers working on their own amazing projects or who are passionate about working on great Sierra IP,” added Sierra director of external development Bob Loya. “We’re in talks with a large number of other indie devs, and we can’t wait to share more details with fans in the near future.”
