Sega and Disney deal means for Disney Parks?

January 20, 2021, 4:35 PM

I had been thinking if Sega and Disney making an exclusive deal to have Sega to make vieo games based on all Disney IPs, including Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, 20th Century, National Geographic, Muppets and ABC. (except for Kingdom Hearts, rights owned by Square Enix, and Spider-Man, video game rights owned by Sony) as part of my plan on how to fix Sega.

What will be the benefits for Disney Parks, if this happens?

It's hard to envision Disney beginning development on any attractions beyond what has already been announced.

Disney is not going to get into an exclusive deal with anyone for video games right now, as they are still licking their wounds over the whole EA exclusivity which has done little but diminish the value of the Star Wars IP.

Ubisoft just announced a new Star Wars game, Square Enix is working with the Marvel rights, Sony has Spiderman in its grasps, Frontier has been making Disneyland and Pixarland games, Travelers Tales pretty much has any IP they want to work, no, exclusivity is not even an option...

And why would Disney want to do business with a company that has a pretty bad track record lately? Much less exclusively? And at this point why would a company want to pay the premium to get those exclusive rights? Whatever there were planning would have to be extremely impressive and a surefire hit...which is no longer guaranteed by your name alone (~cough~ ~cough~ CD Project Red)...

There is one developer on a pretty big SW IP that has not been announced. Sega did do excellent with the last Alien game, but it is true that they are not doing an exclusive deal. The big one is Knights of the Old Republic, but the rumor is that it is a small developer. It could be Sega though. Many hope KOTOR is Obsidian. True that EA just about killed the IP on the game side even going so far as potential criminal issues in some countries for the way they marketed and sold ‘loot boxes’ to kids.
