Activision may be reviving the Sierra Entertainment brand, the developer and publisher best known for games like King's Quest, Space Quest, Gabriel Knight and Phantasmagoria, based on a teaser website and video that recently went online.
In what capacity Activision plans to exploit the Sierra brand is unclear. The teaser website features only a modernized Sierra logo, a cinematic of an explorer running toward a mountain shaped like the Sierra logo and a hint that more information will be revealed at Gamescom 2014, which takes place Aug. 13-17 in Cologne, Germany. Polygon will be reporting live from Gamescom next week.
Sierra joined Activision in 2008 when Sierra parent company Vivendi Games merged with Activision to become Activision Blizzard. Sierra published Valve's early games, like Half-Life and Counter-Strike, and later published the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon franchises.
Last year, Telltale Games announced it was no longer working on a King's Quest game it had in development as part of an agreement with Activision.
