Seemingly wiped from existence following the Activision Vivendi merger in 2008, the Sierra brand still lives on and is set to make a comeback at this year’s Gamescom. Renamed Sierra Games, the former self-publisher uploaded the following video to YouTube earlier this week.
We’re still unsure as to why Activision Blizzard has decided to revive the studio or what it may currently have in the development pipeline. Sierra has been around since 1980, having created classic series such as Gabriel Knight, King’s Quest, and Leisure Suite Larry. It’s more recent work includes last-gen launch window shooter, TimeShift as well as the under-appreciated Bourne Conspiracy.
Still, even when looking at the studio’s track record, we’re still none the wiser as to what it could announce at Gamescom. That’s okay, however, we love surprises.
