Sierra Games recently re-opened its doors after being a rather defunct portion of the Activision Blizzard portfolio of studios. Today, they have announced a launch of two new properties: Geometry Wars 3 and a new King’s Quest game.
In addition, Sierra Games will be searching through the independent developer scene to provide funding to bring more breadth to the Activision portfolio outside of the Call of Duty, Destiny, World of Warcraft giant. These independent developers may work with Sierra Games to bring a new take on some of their old properties, such as the new King’s Quest game, or they may work on their own original projects that Sierra will assist with funding.
“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,” Sierra director of external development said. “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.”
This is a great new avenue for Sierra Games and for Activision to not only bring back old favorites, but also bolster their offerings with some of the passion of the independent scene. These games are slated to be offered on multiple platforms from Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and Steam, however all platforms have not been announced.
