SEGA to Cancel Games, Focus on Existing IP

Dark days

SEGA has revealed it's to slim down its Western operations and cancel some games to combat an operating loss in the current financial year.

The publisher hasn't stated which games will be cancelled but did reveal its desire to focus on strong-selling IPs such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Football Manager, Total War and Aliens. From our list of SEGA games coming soon most titles on the way to Nintendo are either completed or retro re-releases, so hopefully we shouldn't miss out on too many titles we already know about.

The statement cites the "severe economic environment" in the West and "rapid change in market" as two principal reasons behind the loss.

SEGA will also downsize operations in its North America and Europe video game divisions, likely resulting in redundancies over the coming months.
