SEGA Current Development Studios
« on: January 24, 2016, 08:34:23 pm »
Introduction and Overview.
 Over the years there has been lot's of different teams at Sega, some in-house like Smilebit and some contracted like Tj&E Productions or most recently M2 who helped for the coding of the 3D classic games on 3DS.
 In this thread I hope to give clarity on the current development team line up of sega and go into some brief detail of each teams role, of course I welcome any suggestions or details I can add to this list and if I get anything wrong feel free to let me know, there maybe some generalisation but I found that it was clearer this way.
 Sometimes you have AM2 making handheld games like Hatsuni Miku Project Mirai or Arcade editions as opposed to CS3 who would usually handle the franchise, another example would be the Mario and Sonic Games which was primarily made by the Sports Department (previously Smilebit) that would be merged back into the current CS1, these games got development supervision from Sonic Team but would still officially be categorised as a CS1 franchise so it will go under that teams development category.


 Originally I intended to list the games individually but for now I'm going to list the franchises currently handled or supervised by that respective team, for instance PSO is no longer CS2 (Sonic Team) as the sub faction responsible for those games went on to help form the current CS3, it's important to remember that this is meant to be very current and I will only include games that are recent enough or are still going be the team currently handling that particular franchise such as Super Monkey Ball and Let's make a Pro Soccer Team which is still going today by the same team, either way I will try to keep things clear and concise.

 Thanks, Breadarms.

Nice start... but Index was recently sold, wasn't it? And if you're going to list Atlus you should list the other devs they've acquired... Creative Assembly, et al.

I've just done the Japanese side so far, I think Sega still own a portion of Index that atlas came with, maybe George can clarify if he visits this thread, I'll get round to doing the rest soon, realised what a task I took on yesterday lol, was thinking about listing each game that each of the teams made since the restructure in 2010 I think it was or thereabouts.

Getting there, just about done for now, if anyone feels up to compiling the studio specific games, feel free, I really can't be bothered for now.

Decided to add more details to developers inventory, well for the easier ones like Hardlight I've managed to put everything they have made, I might consider doing more but like for example Sports Interactive have made so many versions of football manager there is almost no point in listing them all so I've just generalised, like I said before if anyone wants to tackle an entire inventory for a particular developer then just leave a comment in the thread and I'll update to the list :)

Loved spiral knights. Three rings had a lot of potential.
