Sierra Entertainment, a company responsible for many great adventure games back in the 1980’s and is older as a company than the average gamer, might be rising from the grave in time for gamescom 2014. Geoff Keighley tweeted out the link to sierra.com last night, which in turn broadcasted the below video. After the video, the above “Sierra” logo appears, with a gamescom 2014 logo appearing in the bottom-left corner and a copyright marking of Activision Publishing, Inc.
Who knows what’s coming from Sierra Entertainment; all we do know is that it will be through Activision as publishers. For those that want to jump to the inevitable “hype” conclusions that we have no basis of knowing right now, Sierra Entertainment did publish games for Crash Bandicoot and Spyro from 2005-2008 before the company was swallowed by Activision proper.
Then again, we are talking about Activision publishers. Who knows, they could be coming on to be the fourth developer of the Call of Duty series in order to make a game that truly has the player examine their thoughts and solve problems and puzzles by hunting pixels in a 3D battleground. Hopefully, whatever it is is generally acceptable to be worth making a grand spectacle about. The gaming community is abuzz right now about what the future of Sierra Entertainment entails, but it looks like we’ll have to wait until gamescom 2014 to see.
Or, you can let us know in the comments section below what you think Sierra is bringing to the table in 2014 and beyond.
