Sierra Lives On, Announces Two New Projects

At Gamescom today, Activision has announced that Sierra will live on, and will be bringing a couple of beloved franchises back with it as well. With Sierra’s revival, the studio’s responsibility under Activision’s label will be to bring indie labels to digital platforms like PSN, Xbox Live, and Steam.

One of these titles is Geometry Wars, which will see a new entry called Geometry Wars: Dimensions release later this year, according to GamesIndustry Biz. It won’t be an Xbox exclusive as it has been confirmed that it will be released on “more platforms than ever before,” though exactly what these platforms are remains to be seen. 

King’s Quest is also getting revived, and will be developed by The Odd Gentleman, and is slated for a 2015 release date.

The original co-founder of Sierra, Ken Williams, said, “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. We look forward to seeing Sierra’s independent spirit live on, and are especially excited to see what The Odd Gentlemen will do with King’s Quest.”
