Activision is reviving the Sierra label to publish indie titles on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, and Steam, and its first two projects are Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions and a new King’s Quest game.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is being developed by Lucid Games and is set to release this holiday season. The game features a single-player mode with 50 challenges and 10 battle modes, and co-op and competitive multiplayer. Dimensions will appear on ”more platforms than ever before,” according to studio head Pete Wallace.

The Odd Gentlemen is also working on a new Kings Quest game that will release in 2015. The story will follow King Graham and his granddaughter Gwendolyn.

“Sierra’s goal is to find and work with gifted up-and-coming indie developers working on their own amazing projects, or passionate about working on great Sierra IP, and leverage our expertise to aid them in bringing these fun and exciting experiences to gamers with the level of visibility and awareness they deserve, said Bob Loya, senior director of external development ay Sierra. ”In addition to Lucid Games and The Odd Gentlemen, we’re in talks with a large number of other indie devs, and can’t wait to share more details with fans in the near future.”

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
