No Sega Booth at E3
Sonic and Total War publisher won't have a booth on the show floor this year.
Sonic and Total War publisher Sega has confirmed that it will not have a booth on the show floor at E3 2015 next month in Los Angeles. A representative for the company confirmed the news today to Game Informer.
The move comes after Sega announced a restructuring plan at the end of January that would see the company's San Francisco office relocated to southern California. That was one of the reasons Sega offered in explaining why it wouldn't have a booth at E3 this year.
“Over the next months, Sega of America will be focusing on the restructure and relocation to southern California, and we have decided to not attend E3 with our own booth this year," the spokesperson said.
“With the majority of our bigger titles launching later in 2015/2016, particularly those from our AAA studios Relic Entertainment (Company of Heroes), Sports Interactive (Football Manager), and Creative Assembly (Total War), we are concentrating our efforts for some of these major announcements after our relocation. Instead, we will be collaborating with our various business partners for this year's E3 show."
Sega paid $26.6 million back in January 2013 to buy Relic Entertainment and the Company of Heroes franchise as part of the THQ bankruptcy auction. In other recent news, Sega has announced the next Total War game, Total War: Warhammer, which is currently in development for PC.
E3 2015 runs June 16-18 in Los Angeles. GameSpot will be reporting live from the show all week long.
