Activision denies Sierra closure

Publish date:

Activision has denied speculation that it has closed its Sierra indie publishing label.

Multiple development sources told MCV last week that the Activision division – responsible for King's Quest, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved, Shiftlings and Velocity 2K – no longer existed, with just one title still in production.

Activision has refuted the story, insisting that the project remains alive. Sierra was resurrected at Gamescom 2014, where the firm announced it would be releasing indie games. It also announced that indie studios would be able to work on Sierra's own IP, as well as new titles and HD remakes.
