The MicroProse publishing brand is being resuscitated after an absence of almost 20 years.
The last time MicroProse was active as a publisher was in 2002, at which point it was owned by Infogrames. The French company had purchased MicroProse and its IP as part of a larger deal for Hasbro Interactive the year before.
The last game to be released under the brand was Grand Prix 4 in 2002, by which point Infogrames had already decided to stop using the MicroProse name on its products.
However, MicroProse is now making a comeback under new owner and CEO David Lagettie, a simulation software entrepreneur.
