Sega has confirmed to Polygon, that as part of restructuring of the Sonic and mobile gaming departments within Sega of America, the company’s European office has undergone layoffs.

“Sega is in the process of consolidating certain functions of the Sonic and Mobile departments within Sega of America, where the management and production for those areas of the business reside,” a Sega representative said. “As part of that strategy a limited number of redundancies have taken effect in our European office, based in London.”

Sega closed offices in Europe and Australia in 2012 after the company announced a restructuring plan. Last October the company laid off an unspecified number of employees at Sega of America with a representative saying it was necessary “to compete and succeed in an ever-changing environment.”
