(re: Vivendi Games Cuts Work Force (including former Sierra office)) It is looking more and more likely that the Sierra label may dissappear for good.
If I remember correctly, this idea was actually bandied about a few years ago. They were going to replace it with the Black Label Games name. However, in the end this was only used on a few releases and the Sierra name stayed.
But suppose Vivendi’s games division was in some sort of financial trouble, or simply stopped using the Sierra name on its releases, would it be possible for “someone” to come in and buy back “Sierra”?
To tell the truth, I don’t see why “someone” couldn’t do that right now. As Ken noted on another part of this site, Sierra exists only as a label nowadays anyways. And even as a label, it really isn’t worth much in today’s market.
I reckon today’s PC gamers have learned to distinguish between the products of “Classic Sierra” and “Current Sierra”. Unlike in the old days, no one will today buy a game simply because it has the Sierra name on it.
