Sierra And King's Quest Are Coming Back From The Dead

12 Aug, 2014, 21:34 | Posted by: Jennifer
The Sierra website is back online because Activision is bringing Sierra back as their indie label. They have also announced that The Odd Gentlemen, the developers of the puzzle game The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, are developing a new King's Quest title. When Telltale Games announced that their King's Quest title was cancelled because Activision revoked the license, the article that announced the cancellation stated that Activision had their own plans for the series. Hopefully, this time King's Quest IX actually comes into being, as fans have been waiting patiently to discover what the Graham clan have been up to after all these years. We'll soon find out if King Graham and his family will have better luck this time, as the game is scheduled to be released in 2015.

What does everyone else think about this?

    When I read.about it, it sounded to me like they are doing a reboot/reimagining of the Kings Quest brand, not a Kings Quest 9.

    But I hope I'm wrong and they are doing a KQ9. That would rock.

    This article states that the game is going to deal with an old King Graham telling his granddaughter Gwendolyn tales of his adventures, so it actually sounds like it might be a little bit of both.

    This actually sounds like it could be fun, as we will get to see what the Graham family has been up to after King's Quest 8, but we still will get to play a game again with a younger Graham. It could potentially be the best of both worlds.
