"DeNA Group is continually evaluating its business operations to ensure that it’s structured in the best possible way to deliver high-quality mobile games to consumers worldwide," the company’s global public relations representative Tomoyuki Akiyama said in a statement.

The office will be reorganised in a phased manner but we plan to continue our operations in Singapore next year."
