Job Cuts Hit Sega's London Office

Part of a restructuring of the Sonic and mobile departments

Sega Europe has confirmed to Polygon today that it's laid off an unspecified number of employees at its London office, as the company's Sonic and mobile departments are consolidated into Sega of America:

Sega is in the process of consolidating certain functions of the Sonic and Mobile departments within Sega of America, where the management and production for those areas of the business reside. As part of that strategy a limited number of redundancies have taken effect in our European office, based in London.

This is the latest in a list of recent Sega redundancies. Offices throughout Europe and Australia were closed in 2012 as part of a refocusing on Sega's core franchises, and last year employees at Sega of America were laid off as a response to the "ever-changing environment" of the games industry.

We wish the best to those affected by these job cuts.
