SEGA Not Bringing Booth to E3

In a move that coincides with a spate of bad news from the house that Sonic built, publisher SEGA will not be present at E3 this June. SEGA issued Game Informer the following statement:

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. With the majority of our bigger titles launching later in 2015/2016, particularly those from our AAA studios Relic Entertainment, Sports Interactive and Creative Assembly, 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.

Although SEGA will not be at E3 proper, their games will be shown through studios like Creative Assembly and Relic Entertainment. While SEGA is issuing 3D Classics on the 3DS eShop, the company has little else of note for Nintendo fans, as most of their recent line-up consists of PC and mobile titles.

SEGA’s recent restructure in which employees were voluntarily laid off and their games focus has shifted certainly has influenced this decision. And based on their decision to relocate from their San Francisco office to southern California, this news is unsurprising. Alongside the downside of Konami in traditional gaming, another giant has fallen out of the picture (at least for E3).
