SEGA Downsizing to “Streamline Operations”

SEGA of America is downsizing and relocating from San Francisco to Southern California, company president and COO John Cheng has announced.

"This move was crucial to keep SEGA operations moving forward throughout North America and to provide our millions of fans a strong pipeline of content across gaming, TV, merchandising, and more," he said. "We are confident that by relocating to Southern California we will be able to thrive, grow and become a stronger company because of it."

In addition, approximately 300 employees are being offered voluntary retirement. The big restructuring is said to refocus the company's efforts on digital and PC.
