SEGA of America going through another huge restructure, main office is relocating

sega

Here we go again.

First it was Europe, now SEGA of America is getting hit with some major restructuring. In a statement released earlier today, SegaSammy Holdings announced an “Implementation of structure reform” for SEGA of America. Included in this are some potential layoffs in the forms of “voluntary Retirement” and the San Francisco office moving to a new location in Southern California. Also, there will be a more narrow focus on the “amusement business” division.

However, it’s not all bad news. There will be a reinforcement in the “Sonic and merchandising businesses” and the PC and Mobile divisions will be getting a stronger push possibly due to strong current sales in those markets. The full statement can be found here.

I hope that not too many people are affected by the downsizing and those that do find themselves out of a job, that they find a new one quickly. I guess we shall see how this goes for SEGA.

    I guess 2014 was a bad year for sega (financially speaking).

    Now I just want them to port as much of their back catalog as possible to PC. The Dreamcast and Vintage Collections on consoles were fantastic until they dropped off a cliff.

    So does this mean that they’ll churn out more of the 3D classics on the 3DS?

    The past few years have been pretty dismal for Sega, since 2010. There was an article published on the Facebook page ‘I love Japanese game’s which had ex-Sega or soon to be ex-Sega employees talking about what life’s like working at Sega – and as per usual with problems Sega tends to have often enough, it all fundamentally comes down to management.

    I read it, and it seems that SEGA now is a sinking ship.

    Honestly, these employees should just start up a different company with the quality and branding that appears SEGAesque and when SEGA dies out, just buy the naming rights!
