SEGA Games & SEGA Interactive Will Merge This April

The news came down this morning from Sega Sammy Holdings that SEGA Games and SEGA Interactive will merge into one company in April 2020. The company's Chief Creative Office, Toshihiro Nagoshi, went into details about it as well during a livestream this morning from Japan. For those who aren't aware, there is no such company just called SEGA. The Holdings company is the parent company with both of those divisions covering different aspects of their outreach. Obviously, Games do video games with some other elements tied to it, While Interactive has been working the amusement side of things. The two sides have worked independently of each other with different rules and boundaries for them.

So why change now? Apparently, the way the Japanese market is in a place where it is constantly changing, and that system needs to change in their company. So starting in April 2020, the two sides will be merged back together to form SEGA Group. For the vast majority of gamers and people who are fans of the company, nothing will change. The changes will happen more internally than anything else. If you wish to watch the livestream, you can do so here. Fair warning, it is in Japanese with no subtitles.
