Sega restructures

Cuts and pastes R&D studios, and names new president of AM2.

Sega is planning to close four of its nine R&D studios and build two fresh ones as part of a restructuring effort, which will be fleshed out at the company's executive meeting later this month with plans going into effect in October. Apparently the idea behind the reorganisation is to produce best-selling games more efficiently.

Meanwhile, Sega has also named the new president of Sega AM2, one Hiroshi Kataoka, who has been working as director of AM2's top R&D division since last year, and has been involved in various titles from Space Harrier in the arcades during the 1980s to Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution, which was released just last month.
