Sega: Fixing Sonic Will Take Time

There are 73 people out of a job at Sega today, 36 out of Sega San Francisco and 37 out of Sega London, the company confirmed to multiple outlets. A Sega spokesperson attributed the layoffs as part of an internal restructuring, with the San Francisco office heading up Sega's new "Digital Division" and the overseas London office continuing work on Sega's traditional console and PC initiatives.

"As of today SEGA will implement a re-organisation of its businesses within the American and EMEA markets," said the company in a brief statement today released to Kotaku. "The restructure reflects both the changing face of the global video games market and a need to improve efficiencies within the operation. The management team are confident that these necessary steps will benefit the company and allow it to continue to grow and adapt to the rapidly changing market."

Sega said more details about the restructuring would be made available in the "coming weeks."
