How many of you guys remember Sierra? We’re not sure if many of you guys do, but the company (who has been both a publisher and developer) has been behind many popular games in the past. This includes titles like Quest for Glory, King’s Quest, the Crash Bandicoot series, Homeworld, and even Half-Life and Counter-Strike.

However when Activision and Vivendi merged, the company was shut down, but the good news is that it looks like Activision could be thinking of reviving it. Clues to Sierra’s revival comes in the form of a website registered in its name and a recent video (see above) that was posted onto a YouTube channel called Sierra Games.

Based on this, it can only be assumed that Activision is thinking about reviving the company, although to what capacity remains to be seen. Unfortunately the teaser video doesn’t really tell us much either about Activision’s plans. For all we know Sierra could simply be used to publish smaller titles – alternatively we could be looking at a major revival of sorts.

In any case with Gamescom taking place next week, it doesn’t really feel like coincidence that Activision has chosen now to tease us about it. In any case hopefully more will be revealed next week, so be sure to check back with us then the details! In the meantime any old school gamers excited at the possibility of Sierra’s revival?
