Sega is shuttering offices in four different European regions and Australia, the company announced today as part of its "restructuring" efforts.

The cuts affect locations in France, Spain, Benelux, and Germany, specifically.

In Sega's stead, Koch Media, parent company of Dead Island developer Deep Silver, will handle distribution responsibilities in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, and Spain. Level03 Distribution and 5 Star Game will take over Benelux and Australia beginning in July.

Sega's London office will stay open in an oversight capacity only.

"Sega is entering a new and exciting phase that will position the company as a content led organization maximizing sales with strong and balanced IP such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Total War, Football Manager and the Aliens franchise," said Sega Europe COO Jurgen Post.
