Sega has released their Road to 2020 company outline (Click Here to Read it), and in doing so, they’ve outlined their trajectory for the next few years across the globe. The company plans to focus on a resurgence in arcades, as well as pachinko machines. But the main takeaway is a “revival of past IP’s.” What that means as far as their franchises go could be anyone’s guess.
In the past Sega had some of the most groundbreaking and original franchises, that could be easily adapted into newer properties today. Fingers crossed at seeing that new Vectorman, or Comix Zone title in the near future. While this plan is still preliminary, it’s nice to see Sega working diligently to restore their former glory, and many of the revolutionary ideas in the industry that once made them the leader of the pack.
