sega-logo

Sega have confirmed reports they have laid off employees at Sega Networks, the company’s mobile division in the West.

The layoffs were due to changes to focus on IP-based games within internal studios, bringing popular mobile games from Japan over to the West, and “mass market view-per-play games designed to further Sega’s network strategy in the West.”

GamesBeat attempted to learn how many people were laid off and Sega would not comment on just how many are affected.  They did however release this statement..

“In response to challenging and hyper-competitive mobile market conditions, Sega Networks Inc., Sega’s mobile division in the West, has refocused its operations and made a reduction in workforce. As a result, we said goodbye to our talented friends and colleagues at Three Rings Design Inc. alongside a small number of team members on the publishing side of Sega’s mobile division.”
