SEGA Looking To Bring Back Past IPs

Sega franchises

The plan was laid out in a presentation called "The Road to 2020", which laid out business strategies and policies that they plan to implement within the next three years.

Sega announced that it plans not only to release new IPs to the market over the next few years, but it also wants to investigate the implications of the "revival of major IPs". That slide show is mostly just a breakdown of SEGA's business, but included in their plans for their future strategy was an interesting piece of information. It's worth mentioning Sega's notable IPs, such as The House of The Dead, Daytona USA, Jet Set Radio, After Burner, Crazy Taxi, and Cyber Troopers Virtual-On haven't seen any major releases since 2010. It's been 10 years since the original version of Virtua Fighter 5 came out on consoles and a Virtua Fighter 6 has never been made.

SEGA sells by far most of its packaged games overseas, with 7.37 million units shipped overseas a year ago versus 1.85 million units in Japan.


What IPs will be revived by Sega are now under speculation as no other details were revealed in the presentation.

However one major part of the presentation has caught eyes and that is where SEGA has said it will revive major IPs.

Moreover, I know a lot of the games that most people want span from 1985-2000, which was when Nintendo and Sega were going at it. These titles include Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, Total Warhammer II and Sonic Forces.
