Comeback of Sierra?
« on: April 24, 2006, 09:13:46 PM »
Don't know if this might happen,
but a recent change in the corporate profile of Vivendi Games (as given in their most recent press releases) lists:
''VU Games’ two principal studios are Blizzard Entertainment®, headquartered in Irvine, CA, the creator of World of Warcraft®, Diablo®, StarCraft®, and Warcraft®; and Sierra® Entertainment, headquartered in Los Angeles, which includes Radical Entertainment®, Swordfish Studios, High Moon Studios™, and Massive Entertainment®. Sierra is the owner of Crash Bandicoot®, Spyro The Dragon®, Empire Earth®, Leisure Suit Larry®, and Ground Control®''

Makes it sound like those Studios are what are beginning to comprise a new Sierra. Interesting that one of Sword Fish Studio's head honchos is Kelly Zmak, who was the head of Sierra at one time.

I thought they shut down the last of the Sierra offices not that long ago? ???

Well, a new Sierra would be very nice, as long as VG has absolutely nothing to do with it! And that they can make a decent KQIX, which would in turn, be worse than yours, and be better than a VG made sequal. (I do not mean that your game is bad. I am saying that it would turn out to be of a lot less quality than the amazing and beautiful game that you have made for me!)
