Sega plots revival of major IPs in coming years

Sega plots revival of major IPs in coming years

The company expects its Fiscal Year 2018 (April 1, 2017 - March 31, 2018) performance to top FY2017 in sales, but drop in operating income and overall profits.

Most notable though is talk of "revival" of Sega's vast cache of intellectual property, much of which has been dormant in recent years.

Luke is Games Editor at IGN's Sydney office. Based on the images within the "Road to 2020" document, it appears that SEGA's plans of expanding existing IPs will initially be focused on franchises like Yakuza, Total War, Football Manager, and Persona. It's worth mentioning Sega's notable IPs, such as The House of The Dead, Daytona USA, Jet Set Radio, After Burner, Crazy Taxi, and Cyber Troopers Virtual-On haven't seen any major releases since 2010.

Sega recently released the slide show used in their recent financial report. This marked sales increase will result from SEGA releasing a number of new games, including new IPs, re-releases in hit IPs, and sequels in best-selling IPs.
