Sierra Reviving King's Quest & Geometry Wars

The recently teased revival of the Sierra brand is explained on GamesBeat, where they say this will be the brand for upcoming new installments in the classic King's Quest and more recent Geometry Wars series. They say the Activision owned label will not be about re-releasing Sierra's back-catalog, but they plan to partner with "edgy" indie developers for future collaborations. "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," is a quote attributed to Sierra's director of external development. "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." They have the following description of the two new games:

The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom developer The Odd Gentlemen are producing the new King’s Quest game. It is a fully “reimagined” take on the original series, according to Activision. The publisher promises that The Odd Gentlemen comprises a number of fans of the King’s Quest franchise. The studio intends to capture the same combination of difficult puzzles and engaging narrative as the originals. The adventure title is due out in 2015 for unspecified platforms — although the company notes it will release its software on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and Steam.

While we wait for King’s Quest, we can all shoot some shapes in Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions. Studio Lucid Games, which has produced a small number of mobile games, is taking on the latest entry in the popular shooter franchise. Dimensions will feature a single-player campaign with 50 different challenges in addition to 10 different battle modes. The game is due out this holiday, but Sierra once again didn’t mention any release platforms by name — but it is coming to “more platforms than ever before.”
