SEGA Reveals Plans To Revisit Major Titles In The Future
SEGA has expressed their intent to become one of the top video game publishers again in the near future. Based on reports, the company has apparently shared its three-year plan through their "Road to 2020" document. Part of their plan involves revisiting some of their past major titles and possibly some of their current games. SEGA has not yet confirmed what games will be included in their revival plans.
According to the reports, SEGA has seen a recovery trend with its profits after they have restructured their business. Analysts also expect the company to grow further in the next few years. Not only does the gaming firm's plan involve older Major IPs but they also expressed their plans to add more content for the existing games. There are also rumors that they will also focus on creating new IPs to gain more market share, says Game Rant.
Moreover, SEGA also wants to put importance with the "effective utilization of development engines." Sources also reveal that their "Road to 2020" document included games like "Yakuza", "Persona", "Football Manager", and "Total War" as the titles that might get more expansion content. Games like "Persona 5" and "Total War: Warhammer" have contributed to the company's growth due to their sales numbers. A couple of new games are also scheduled to release in the coming months.
Another top-tier title anticipated by gamers is the PC version of SEGA's "Vanquish" for PC, which launches via Steam on May 25. Some of the big name games coming out this year are "Sonic Mania" and a new "Total War: Warhammer" game, says Gamespot. Surprisingly, the third game of their "Shenmue" series is also slated to launch within the year around winter.
It also looks like SEGA wants to add more focus on the digital marketplace. They want to create more titles that will "become global hits". "Phantasy Star Online 2" is also set to receive several post-launch contents. It appears the company's plans to return to its former glory is slowly being realized.
