(re: re: re: If it were me…) Random thought I had: I hear Vivendi Universal Games is for sale… 🙂
I’ve thought a few times about whether or not I would ever get back into the business. With my old company for sale, it’s pretty tempting. Roberta and I have spent some late nights talking about it. But, we always finish the discussion with the same answer: no.
Maybe someday that will change, but not in the near future. I do hope that somebody buys it, that wants to do great things – and, that whoever the new CEO is they cals me so that I can pitch in a few ideas on how to restore the company to its prior leadership position. Roberta and I really do think of Sierra as our child, and no one wants to see their child fail. One of my governing philosophies at Sierra was that I wanted to build a company that would still be there for future generations. Every decision at Sierra was about trying to build a company that could grow and survive for 100’s of years. Unfortunately, after the company was sold, the new owners focused so much on short-term results, they lost sight of the long-term. It’s a very sad situation.
