Sega finally decides what to do with Atlus

Sega finally decides what to do with Atlus

February 18, 2014 | By Mike Rose




Back in September last year, Sega confirmed that it had acquired Index Corporation and video game subsidiary Atlus. Today, the company held a shareholders' meeting to reveal its future plans for the companies.

It's a tricky state of affairs to follow along with, truth be told. On April 1, Sega will rename Index to Atlus Co., and rename Index Digital Media (Index's overseas subsidiary) to Atlus U.S.A. Both will focus on game development, and will be made up of 121 staffers.

At the same time, Sega will also form a brand new non-game subsidiary which will be known as Index Corporation. This new company will focus on system development and content distribution, and will employ 166 people.

In other words, Atlus will now be the video game development arm of this acquisition and not be a subsidiary of Index anymore, while the newly formed Index company will focus on non-game business solutions, and not be involved with Atlus.

According to Gematsu, current Index company director Yukio Sugino will be Atlus' new representative, while Yasuhiko Hamada, currently EVP for Index, will be in charge of the new Index company.
