Sega Europe has signed a publishing partnership with Two Point Studios - the independent developer formed by two former Lionhead bosses.
Very nice sega
Sega is trying to gain the traction again, has been signing contracts and reshuffling IPs lately.
Don't sleep on Sega folks.
Been saying this for years, they are sleeping giants.
They bought Atlus, Relic and Creative Assembly last gen.
The make smart buys and they are very conservative in terms of business.
They're much more stable than any of the other big Japanese devs these days. Konami, Capcom, even SE are all making some really bad mistakes with their businesses.
Thats what many don't get.
Last gen ,Square went YOLO with titles likes FFXIII, Konami lost many developers and is almost out of console gaming, Capcom went FULL BLOWN YOLO and even entertained selling the company
Square is doing better, but it took that gen to make them realize they can't just go ultra yolo like that.
Capcom is out here needing Nintendo, Sony AND MS to fund many of their projects, SFV failing ,RE7 is only a great title because Capcom couldn't afford to chase COD (THANK GOD). It legit took this company almost going out of business to start to act conservative in terms of business.
They outsource, they need soooo many other companies to help them out and its clear their output is less then last gen.
Sega has stayed conservative on their spending, didn't try to go yolo and chase "Call Of Duty" and made very smart moves.
This company didn't risk their damn business last gen like other Japanese companies did and look at them now. Buying teams left and right and making smart moves. For them to buy a Crytek team and some of Lionhead's staff is just amazing.
I've followed them as a business for a while and always felt they where makings smarter moves last gen then MOST Japanese publishers.
I really really like to see this company to flourish and to go back to the glory days, once it had.
Some of my favorite MD titles are:
Generations lost, Stargate, Shinobi, Beyond Oasis, Road Rash, Deep Space Nine and NBA Jam TE.
Cool, I didn't know they bought Atlus too.
🐶 < "SEGA!"
Genesis does what Nintendon't!!!
Man, the old days were awesome...
No joke there. I miss booting my Master System up, for some Shinobi, OutRun, Alien Syndrome & Double Dragon.
I wonder how much different the bickering between Sega v Nintendo compared to Xbox v PlayStation would be if the Internet was as widespread and mainstream appeal was identical.
I think it would be really tame. SEGA actually made an incredible amount of good games then, so did Nintendo. There was a better unity and amount of respect during that time. Plus they didn't force players to play just multiplayer games.
A new phantasy star would be glorious!
Say it, say it...
So what's the games concept seeing how a publishing deal has been announced before anything is known of said game .Be funny if the game turned out to be crap .
Seems like sega really is getting back in the game.
For what, great games? great soundtracks? actual free internet?
Sonic and Fable mashup?
Its called Sable bro, or maybe Fonic. You choose.
If THQ Nordic aren't willing to do it I hope SEGA picks up IO Interactive.
LOVE SEGA!!! Been playing OUTRUN and SUPER HANG ON the other day, TIMELESS CLASSICS !!!!! SEGA FOREVER.
Maybe Sega can buy IO too
- phantasy star or shining force
- gunstar heroes
- panza dragoon
- virtual fighter
If they can do online (rather than a console because I think it is pretty saturated already) and bring your stuff to PC as well that would be good.
Sega also own Company Of Heroes on PC (Relic) I love that game.
