Rumour: SEGA Looking to Buy Warhammer 40K License

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Remember recently when SEGA acquired the Warhammer license? That deal does not include the license to all Warhammer properties. This includes the Warhammer 40K license.

However, after THQ recently declared bankrupcy, the publisher are now selling of its’ properities one by one. Guess who might be in the run to get their hands on the Warhammer 40K license and Relic Entertainment (developers of Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War)? That’s right; SEGA.

Indie developer Tim Lewinson recently tweeted; “Hearing that the high bid for @Relicgames at the @THQ IP auction is *drumroll* @Sega.”

If this is true then SEGA will be home to all Warhammer licensed games for the foreseeable future. More on this as we get it.

Yu Suzuki Looking To Get The Shenmue License Back From SEGA

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Yu Suzuki is tugging at our heart-strings again. The man responsible for cult favourite RPG series Shenmue has announced through an interview at Shenmue Master that “Shenmue’s license is an IP that belongs to SEGA” and that “We can obtain the license from SEGA.”

Suzuki is clearly not going to rest until his series is complete. He even went on to reveal a major plot point that will be central to Shenmue III if it ever appears. Referring to an image that has been circulating the internet for some time that features the silhouette of an unknown charatcer, Suzuki said “This is the person who has trained with Iwao [Hazuki] in the olden days in China. Then, in the story that will take place after Shenmue II, he will become a “key” character!”

Fingers crossed that Suzuki is successful in his endevours!
