Activision looks set to resurrect the Sierra Entertainment brand, the developer and publisher best known for multiple series of adventure games started in the 1980s such as King's Quest, Space Quest and Leisure Suit Larry.
In later years the company also published Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Homeworld, and the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon series.
Sierra was closed in 2008 after then-parent company Vivendi merged with Activision to form Activision Blizzard.
Activision's plans for the Sierra brand are unclear, but the company has posted a teaser video and promised "more to be revealed at Gamescom 2014," which takes place in Cologne, Germany from August 13-17. The Sierra.com website has also been revived.
