Sega Teases Revival of Major IPs Over the Next Few Years

Sega Could Be Planning To Resurrect Huge IPs

While other companies tend to just look ahead to the next fiscal year, Sega's got a road map all the way until 2020 to help guide the company. However, many people will notice the outline in the packaged games fields in "Segment Goal / Business Strategies" section includes the major point of "Revival of major IPs".

Sega plans to revive several IPs as part of their three-year plan looking towards the next generation of consoles.

Luke is Games Editor at IGN's Sydney office. With a series of recent announcements and a number of new titles to come in the coming months, SEGA look to be continuing its positive run at least in the short-term.

Back in the day, SEGA used to be a pretty big household name as far as gaming was concerned.

As of late, Sega has drummed up a lot of goodwill by reviving recent cult classics from PlatinumGames, like Bayonetta and Vanquish, and bringing them to PCs.

They also suggest that they will revive "major IPs" sometimes soon, hopefully, to face some of the same success that Nintendo found with Pokemon. To "create titles that will become global hits".

Exactly what SEGA plans to release remains to be seen since the company does have quite a few titles under the belt.

Another interesting piece of news is that various Sega holdings, such as Sega Games and Atlus, will be relocated to the Osaki area to reinforce collaboration between studios.

Persona 5 and Total War: Warhammer give Sega a bump at the end of the fiscal year.
