Sega Announces Plans To Revive Major IPs

SEGA has revealed plans for a revival of "major IPs" within the SEGA Sammy group's new "Road to 2020" document, released following the March 31, 2017 end of the fiscal year.

Under "Packaged Game Field" SEGA included "Expand existing IPs and obtain new IPs for North American and European PC Games" and the "Revival of major IPs".

As reported by Gematsu, Sega reported on a roadmap to investors on what it wants to do in the near future.

Sega also announced during the presentation that Total War: Warhammer and Persona 5 have done well in the last quarter - the games have amassed up to 10.28 million between them.

For the fiscal year of 2017-2018, Sega has set a sales goal of 11.6 million units with current and upcoming titles.

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.

Sega... the one who directly competed with Nintendo back in the heyday of gaming with some noteworthy hardware and titles, has now since scaled back (drastically).

SEGA will be enforcing a new strategy to become a big name again. The document references quite a few directions that Sega would like to go in moving forward, but the most interesting tidbit is certainly their promise to revive major IPs within the next few years. These titles include Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, Total Warhammer II and Sonic Forces.
