Sega of America has confirmed that a number of the company’s employees were laid off recently, GamesBeat reports.

The exactly number of employees affected by this is unknown. According to GamesBeat, it is supposedly only a small number.

“As the gaming industry continues to evolve, companies must adapt and adjust in order to compete and succeed in an ever-changing environment,” a Sega spokeswoman told GamesBeat. “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.”

Last year, Sega confirmed that it would be closing offices across North America and Europe to focus on key brands such as Total War and Sonic. News of these layoffs also comes in the wake of Sega Sammy’s $140 million acquisition of Atlus and their parent company, Index Corporation, in September, after Index filed for bankruptcy in June.
