In 2008 Vivendi, Sierra’s parent company, merged with Activision, and following that merger Sierra was shut down. However, yesterday a new logo, website, and trailer emerged online teasing the return of the company.
Sierra first formed in 1979, and until it’s closure in 2008 it had released many well-known games, including Gabriel Knight, Leisure Suit Larry, Homeworld 2, Crash Bandicoot, and Spyro the Dragon.
Now Activision have seemingly resurrected the company, what could this mean? A return of an old franchise, or perhaps a brand new title? I guess we’ll find out more at Gamescom next week.
