Sega and Sports Interactive Team Up

Following the dissolution of the partnership between Eidos plc and Sports Interactive, developer of the popular Championship Manager series, Sports Interactive has signed a five year deal with Sega Europe Ltd.

The pair will first release Eastside Hockey Manager (a working title) this summer, after which Sports Interactive will once again delve into the “football” (termed soccer stateside) category, with the planned release later this year of Football Manager 2005. The new series promises “numerous advancements in technology and game play, including new tactics and pre and post-game analysis.”

The agreement gives Sega the right to distribute titles “across all relevant territories.” Sports Interactive is also considering developing management games based on other sports as well. Eidos retained the rights to the Championship Manager brand and previously indicated it would develop future titles in the series in-house.
