Sega planning "revival of past IPs" moving forward

As well as "active utilisation of external IPs."

  • Text: Sam Bishop

Sega has recently published its Road to 2020 business presentation, and among the interesting information in there, the company revealed that both Persona 5 and Total War: Warhammer have been successes for them.

Persona 5 has sold 1.5 million units, for example, and together with the good sales for TWW, this brings the total unit sales for the past fiscal year to 10.28 million, with new sales making 5.24 million of that.

What's arguably more interesting, however, is that Sega also explains its strategy for creating "global hits" in the future, which includes "revival of past IPs and active utilisation of external IPs," as well as increasing developments channels to include mobile, PC, and consoles.

As if all this wasn't enough, the company is also apparently expanding development "simultaneously around the globe," so it seems there's no shortage of ambition.

Also as VG247 noticed, developer Obsidian tweeted a response to the story (as reported by Kotaku) saying: "You don't say. What if...?," regarding the revival of old IPs, which some have taken to be a hint for Alpha Protocol 2.

Which revivals would you like to see?
