A bit late on seeing this post, so… sorry for resurrecting an old one. I found it very interesting that Ken had the opportunity to buy Sierra back. The fact that he passed on that opportunity is understandable, and like many others, I respect that decision.
What’s particularly sad about the situation though is that all of the great IPs are now just sitting in a dungeon somewhere in the Activision/Blizzard empire (I think they own Vivendi now, don’t they?). It would have been amazing beyond belief if at least the IPs could have been liberated. I’d love to see those end up in the hands of Telltale, for example.
