"As the gaming industry continues to evolve, companies must adapt and adjust in order to compete and succeed in an ever-changing environment," the company said.

"As a result of this, Sega of America has recently undergone a restructure that will enable the company to focus efficiently on developing new and existing content across digital platforms as well as continuing to focus on key brands for packaged goods."

It is unclear how many jobs were cut or which divisions were hit, though GamesBeat understands that the number of affected employees is "small."

Sega of America parent company Sega Sammy recently acquired Index Corporation, the owner of Persona and Shin Megami Tensei developer Atlus.

The company also purchased Relic Entertainment and the Company of Heroes franchise for $26.6 million during the THQ bankruptcy auction in January.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
