Sega are a company who survived a long period of extreme financial turmoil in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. However, in a recent Road to 2020 business presentation, it seems the organisation may well be looking to resurrect some of their past IP’s as they look to the future.
More recently, Sega have seen much more success with titles such as Total War: Warhammer and Persona 5 both going on to sell in their millions. But the business document brings to light their scope to develop ‘global hits’ along with the ‘revival of past IP’s and active utilisation of external IP’s.’ Further to this, development is expanding around the globe as Sega’s ambition increases. The once dominant force in both console and games could yet see a return as a big player in the market, albeit without the console aspect (don’t get your hopes up).
Speculation has begun as to what such IP’s may make a return. Sega do of course hold a strong back catalogue that can be explored. But it’s Obsidian who have laid down the speculation gauntlet with a recent tweet:
The developer worked on a more recent IP, Alpha Protocol for Sega. Of which seems to have garnered a cult following. The tweet could indicate a sequel is in the works, or it could be something entirely different.
Until we hear more, we could speculate until E3. But in the meantime, let us know what you’d like to see return? Crazy Taxi? Golden Axe? Panzer Dragoon? The possibilities are endless.
