SEGA CEO Leaves Company
It’s been a while since SEGA has been on top. The last time they rivalled the likes of Sony, Nintendo and newcomer Microsoft, was before the SEGA Dreamcast, and at this point we all have an idea about how that one went.
SEGA has recently had a long list of layoffs and title cancellations, leaving the gaming company in dire straights.
Now, in the latest bit of news, it has been announced that CEO Mike Hayes is leaving effective this summer. He will go on to serve as an advisor at SEGA as well as other major game publishers and developers. It is unknown at this time whether Hayes left on his own accord or was oujsted.
Current SEGA COO Jurgen Post is slated to take over for Hayes as CEO in both Europe and America.
In his work at SEGA, Hayes was known for bringing aboard Total War developer Creative Assembly, and creating the company’s digital distribution platform.
Hopefully, Hayes’ departure will help the company move forward in a bold new direction, lest they have to file for bankruptcy.
