Newsbrief: Activision has hinted that it may be resurrecting its Sierra studio, with a teaser video from the defunct studio.

Activision bought and closed down Sierra back in 2008, as part of a merger with Sierra's then owner Vivendi Games. However, the Sierra website has now been updated with a short teaser video, and a new Sierra logo.

The publisher says that it will reveal next week at Gamescom in exactly what capacity Sierra has returned.

As a mobile house focused on converting hot celebrity properties to data driven f2p mobile titles?

I want to believe Double Fine Adventure, Wasteland 2, etc have made them realize there's a market for quality adventures. But Kardashians seems more likely.

I can't see Activision making new adventure games with this label....perhaps re-releasing old classics for tablet and mobile though. Or some sort of SWAT relaunch perhaps.....

So? Its not like they'll bring back the Williams, so Sierra will just be a name, with little backing it up.

Pretty much. Unless there's any successful attempt to bring back some of the original developers, I think all of whome have largely left the games industry all together or maybe came back to kickstart their own franchises like the Two Guys From Andomeda, then it's just an empty name cynically used to try to stoke the nostalgia of gamers old enough to remember the magic that started in the Williams garage.
