Sega Teases Revival of Major IPs Over the Next Few Years

Sega Could Be Planning To Resurrect Huge IPs

Sega Could Be Planning To Resurrect Huge IPs

The company enjoyed strong performances, having a total of 10.28 million game units sold, with contributions from new releases such as Persona 5 and Total War: Warhammer.

During the recent earnings call, Sega revealed its plans for the future in the game industry.

Earlier in the extensive report SEGA Sammy notes that profit is "on a recovery trend" following business structure reform throughout 2016 and 2017, and that further growth is anticipated.

In case you haven't noticed, SEGA has recently brought back to life both Bayonetta and Vanquish with PC ports and it looks like this might just be the beginning. It has been a very long time since Sega was a major name for gaming fans. This information explaining the above comes from Road to 2020 business presentation for the fiscal year that ended on March 31st, 2017.

What do you think of Sega's lofty goals of global hits and reviving major IPs? Or maybe SEGA and Obsidian want to work together to create a new IP? It identified several key brands for growth, such as Total War, Football Manager, Sonic the Hedgehog, Yakuza, and hearteningly enough, Persona, and promised to pare back its output to a lower number of games, but each game being more meaningful and impactful. Sega's wording in the statement is interesting - what amounts to a "major" brand for the publisher remains to be seen.

Moreover, I know a lot of the games that most people want span from 1985-2000, which was when Nintendo and Sega were going at it.
