Sega Europe COO Jergen Post revealed that the company will be closing a total of five European offices in France, Germany, Spain, Australia, and Benelux by the end of the year. Luckily, the UK studios The Creative Assembly and Sports Interactive have been spared.

Sega will re-focus its efforts on Aliens, Sonic, Total War, and Football Manager as well as their digital downloads:
Jergen Post also commented on how difficult it is to introduce new IPs in the current market:
