Sega of America confirmed this week that it had laid of an unspecified number of employees. GamesBeat spoke with a Sega representative who wouldn’t reveal the exact number of employees who’d lost their jobs, but indicated the number was small.
The spokesperson told GamesBeat, “As the gaming industry continues to evolve, companies must adapt and adjust in order to compete and succeed in an ever-changing environment.” They continued, “As a result of this, Sega of America has recently undergone a restructure that will enable the company to focus efficiently on developing new and existing content across digital platforms as well as continuing to focus on key brands for packaged goods.”
Sega’s Japanese parent company — Sega Sammy — recently acquired Atlus’ parent, Index Holdings for 14 billion Yen.
