Sega, once a bastion in this industry, has announced a restructuring process that will drastically change its operations. Announced as a new focus on the creation of digital games and existing IPs, this new strategy means the closure of 5 of its offices.
In all, France, Germany, Spain, the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg) and Australia will close up shop and henceforth get directed through Sega’s main European office in England. Distribution of its retail products will be handled by Koch Media in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Spain. Australia and the Benelux will have their games distributed by 5 Star Games and Level03 Distribution respectively.
However, Sega will still handle the release of their newly launched Olympics title, London 2012. This one is available now on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Be a dear and go buy it and/or other Sega games. These people once created some great consoles, filled with great games we still hold dear today, such as Sonic the Hedgehog. It’d be a shame to see their situation get any worse.
