Back in the time, SEGA brought games that helped to shape the video game industry for a long period of time. For example, at the time, games like Streets of Rage, Full Auto, Seaman, Virtua Cop had gamers glued to the screen and interestingly the company is planning on reviving the old games.
Recently, SEGA published its “Road to 2020” roadmap which it revealed its strategy to create titles that will eventually become global hits. In order to achieve that, the company has announced its intention to bring back classic IPs.
As of now, new IP development will begin across all of its three operational areas and the company revealed that the Western PC sector is the company’s main target group. In addition to bringing new and old titles, the company is planning on targeting new areas of the toy market with partnerships involving its existing IP stable.
The report mentions that although Physical games, amusement machines, pachinko and animation are named as the core areas of business, digital games are the biggest growth areas of the company. In the report, the company predicts that digital sales will outpace physical sales which isn’t surprising given that digital revenues are already beating the physical ones.
