Sega of America Has Been Hit With Layoffs


Sega of America has confirmed that the company has laid off a number of its employees this week. Sega is a division of the large Japanese video game publisher, and they did not mention how many jobs were lost.

A spokeswoman for Sega confirmed the news with GamesBeat , she said:

As the gaming industry continues to evolve, companies must adapt and adjust in  order to compete and succeed in an ever-changing environment. As a result of  this, Sega of America has recently undergone a restructure that will enable the  company to focus efficiently on developing new and existing content across  digital platforms as well as continuing to focus on key brands for packaged  goods.

When speaking with GamesBeat, Sega did mention that the number of people that were laid off were small. Still it is never good to hear that a single person has been laid off. So we at 6aming would like to wish everyone the best of luck.
