The presentation does not specify precisely which "major IPs" SEGA may be seeking to exhume at this stage, though it does stress the company will also seek to expand existing properties and challenge for potential new franchises.
SEGA's net profits have surged four-fold year-over-year, and the Japanese games-maker hopes to continue the strong momentum with a new business plan. A total of 10.28 million game units released by Sega were sold during the fiscal year, with the release of Persona 5 and Total War: Warhammer helping the company's good fortunes.
Luke is Games Editor at IGN's Sydney office. Titles such as House of the Dead, Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio are some of the titles that come to mind when it comes to major IPs that have not been seen for a while and remain as cult favorites to this day. No games are specified, but there is great deal of emphasis on expanding overseas games publishing and developing titles that will be become "global hits".
Back in the day, SEGA used to be a pretty big household name as far as gaming was concerned.

The catch is that Project Treble's updates will not apply to older devices, only new devices released with Android O and beyond. Starting with Android O, the OS is being re-engineered to make updates easier, faster, and less costly for manufacturers.
Seeing how Sega wants to bring its games to other platforms, which are not named specifically, but the general idea of mobile, PC and consoles means that everyone will gain access to some of the new games and old revivals.
However one major part of the presentation has caught eyes and that is where SEGA has said it will revive major IPs. These include series like Persona, Football Manager, Total War, Phantasy Star, and of course, Sonic the Hedgehog.
According to the document, Sega also intends to revive some franchises, although nothing official has been announced.
