Sega to Restructure, Closing Publishing Offices Across Europe
Sega is currently in the process of some serious restructuring, as the publisher has just announced that they will be closing their offices in France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Australia, Netherlands and Luxembourg.
Fortunately, there’s no reason to believe that the company’s internal development studios will be affected by the restructuring. Sega will be relying on external distribution firms to fill the void left by closing the aforementioned offices.
Chief operating officer Jurgen Post spoke to the future of the company, re-emphasizing their plan to pursue a more focused approach.
Sega is entering a new and exciting phase that will position the company as a content led organisation maximizing sales with strong and balanced IP such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Total War, Football Manager and the Aliens franchise.
The company will benefit from a clear focus and realigned strategy for our digital business and packaged goods and we are confident that this will lead to a successful future.
Sega has confirmed that they will not be going to gamescom this year, claiming the move is “simply a commercial decision.”
