Seminal game publisher Sierra returns from obscurity with 'Geometry Wars'


Ready to blast some pinwheels again? Hallowed '90s game publisher Sierra is back as an Activision subsidiary with an upcoming sequel to King's Quest and, yes, Geometry Wars. The latter game will be called Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, and Venture Beat reports that Sierra is in talks with independent developers to produce new content as well. In case you've forgotten (or not played the mobile versions), Geometry Wars is about avoiding and blasting an ever-thickening pile of graphically-shaped enemies. It first came out on the original Xbox platform through Project Gotham Racing 2, while the sequel arrived on Xbox Live Arcade -- leaving Xbox One gamers in the lurch. There's no word on which platforms it'll hit when it arrives this Christmas, but Sierra did say that King's Quest will come to Xbox Live, Playstation Network and Steam in 2015 -- a good sign for Geometry Wars.
