North American office becomes Digital Division; Euro operations focus on core games

Publisher Sega is to massively overhaul its Western operations in a move that will result in both a loss of jobs and a sweeping realignment toward the growing digital distribution market.

73 jobs are to be lost in total, with 37 losses at Sega’s London office and 36 in San Francisco. This represents around 12 per cent of Sega West’s workforce.

In addition, the San Francisco office will become Sega’s new Digital Division, with London focusing on ‘traditional’ video games.
