It’s been fourteen years since the Dreamcast’s premature death, and SEGA isn’t the company that it once was. However, a new division of the company called SEGA Interactive was created for the purpose of selling hardware. The question is: what sort of hardware?

Enter Project Dream, a fan-driven SEGA revival campaign which lays out a pretty realistic scenario in which SEGA could be working on a follow-up to their 1999 console in the form of a computer/console hybrid. A man named Patrick Lawson impressively breaks down what it would take to make a new Dreamcast and how SEGA has the appropriate resources.

The official Project Dream website sports a countdown timer that, as of the time of this writing, is at 9 days, 10 hours, and change. At first glance I thought that maybe the timer was counting down until 2016, but it will actually stop just a day or so shy. Is it counting down to a Dreamcast 2 announcement? They couldn’t possibly know that.

Remember, SEGA hasn’t officially announced anything, and this story could be passed off as diehard fans hyping themselves up over nothing, but everyone seems to agree that the company is definitely up to something and whatever it is is being kept under wraps. If anything, the best evidence pointing towards a Dreamcast is the lack of any other ideas or speculation.

Of course, this could all be for nothing. SEGA doesn’t have to be working on anything special. We’ll know more about what Project Dream has up their sleeve after their timer counts down, but it’s anybody’s guess as to what that’s leading to. If SEGA is working on a new Dreamcast, expect these guys to stay on top of patent announcements and other little tidbits. We’ll be sure to let you know what comes of all of this, if anything at all.


Until then, be sure to manage your expectations!
