Sega of America Hit With Layoffs

As confirmed by the Allied Employees Guild Improving Sega, Sega of America has been hit with layoffs and 61 employees no longer have jobs.

The union made the following statement:

A few months ago, Sega management announced their plan to outsource QA and part of Localization in a move that would significantly impact our workforce. We’ve been fighting back on these terms since then, but today the layoff that will result in the loss of 61 jobs across these two departments was made public. Through our union efforts, we’ve been able to more than double the number of saved jobs, and to offer severance to our temp workers. This, however, does not take away from the fact that many of our coworkers are being laid off in a decision we believe will have a negative impact on the working conditions of those who remain with the company, and in the quality of our future games. In spite of this, we remain committed to fighting for our coworkers, and for the betterment of our industry. In the face of mass layoffs that continue to happen across gaming companies, we stand united and in solidarity with those affected.

All of these layoffs are from two locations on their Irvine campus.
