Sierra being resurrected, but for what devious purposes?

While I hold the hope that this is good news, and we can all rejoice.... I have been burned before.
Modernized Quest for Glory would be one of many wish list entries. So long as it isn't a Diablo clone with the name attached, or some such nonsense.

Prediction: the brand will be resurrected to publish mobile free-to-play games.

Hope: What you said.

My hope is that with the popularity of Telltales stuff maybe this is an attempt to do some more story driven games. A lot of sierra's old adventure games were very narrative based so my fingers are crossed.

Also hoping for adventure games... but I too get that awful feeling in the pit of my stomach that they're just going to use Sierra's IP to make awful free-to-play titles.

Saw some tweets today saying Activision is attempting to use Kickstarter for Sierra..... Not sure how I feel about that idea.
