Sega has announced today that it has closed offices in Australia and Europe as part of its restructuring efforts. Sega had recently reported a loss of 86 million dollars, so as a result of that loss the company is now going through a global restructuring. Sega has partnered with 3 companies to handle distribution in Europe and Australia, though Sega UK will remain open as Sega’s acting European headquarters.
The three companies covering distribution for Sega are Koch Media, who will cover all European releases with the exception of games developed by Benelux which will be handled by Level03 Distribution and Australian distribution will be handled by a company named 5 Star. It is unfortunate that Sega has had to close its European and Australian offices, however Sega says that it will take them in a better direction, but what do you think?
