Sega announced that it will be reducing its workforce significantly, by 300 jobs to be exact. Allegedly Sega is doing this to refocus on digital PC and mobile gaming. Luckily, Sega isn’t just cutting these employees loose, Sega is offering an early retirement plan for around 300 employees.
As well as cutting the jobs Sega is also closing its San Fransisco office and moving to southern California. The cutting of costs is assumed to be caused by the recent loss on the part of Sonic Boom. These Wii U and 3DS exclusives were torn apart by critics, causing them to have bad sales.
Of course most people would say that Sega had it coming, but for now, we’ll just have to wait and see what the creator of Sonic is doing next.
