Remember Sierra? Looks like it's coming back

Activision to make announcement at Gamescom.

It looks like Activision will bring back dusty old video game label Sierra.

A new video, published yesterday by a channel called Sierra Games, revealed a fancy new logo, and promised more information at Gamescom next week. The website has been revived, too.

Sierra was responsible for a number of much-loved 1980s adventure games and, later, published Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon games. Space Quest, King's Quest and Police Quest all launched under its banner.

In 2003 Sierra published Relic Entertainment's real-time strategy game Homeworld 2 before shifting to focus on online games. In 2007 it released World in Conflict and Timeshift.

But following the 2008 merger between Activision and Videndi, which owned Sierra at the time, the company was shut down. Now current trademark owner Activision Publishing appears to be reviving it. But for what?
