Sega has confirmed yesterday's report on
that it has closed its racing studio.
Next-Gen was the first site to report on a statement to the press from the publisher.
‘Regrettably Sega today announced that it is to commence consultation regarding the unfortunate closure of the Sega Racing Studio in Birmingham, UK.
‘The decision is part of a review of Sega's Western Development Studios to ensure that each studio is a profitable entity in its own right, and unfortunately the Sega Racing Studio's 5 year plan would not result in a successful return for the Sega business moving forward.
'Sega would like to stress that there will be no changes within their other internal development studios.'
