Originally started in 1982 by industry legends Sid Meier and Bill Stealey, Microprose became known throughout the video game industry as a cutting edge computer game designer and publisher. Focusing primarily on high tech military and strategy simulations, the company eventually merged with Spectrum HoloByte by the 1990's. After going through a series of further changes in ownership, the name and its legacy was wiped out by Infogrames in 2001.
This past Fall, Microprose was acquired by a team of video game industry veterans. Busily working all this time laying a solid operating foundation, Microprose is now ready to launch again! Choosing to start where the previous incarnation's legend left off, Microprose has decided to go right in to the high tech arena again with an exciting product line meant to promote high visibility of the Microprose name.
