Introduction

Company logo since 1982

Sega Games Co., Ltd., originally short for Service Games and officially styled as SEGA, is a Japanese multinational video game developer and publisher headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, with offices around the world. Sega developed and manufactured numerous home video game consoles from 1983 to 2001, but after financial losses incurred from its Dreamcast console, the company restructured to focus on providing software as a third-party developer. Sega remains the world's most prolific arcade producer, with over 500 games in over 70 franchises on more than 20 different arcade system boards since 1981. Sega is also known for publishing several multi-million selling game franchises, notably Sonic the Hedgehog, Total War, and Yakuza.

Sega Games is a subsidiary of Sega Holdings, which itself is part of Sega Sammy Holdings, which is invested in industries outside of video games. Sega's North American division, Sega of America, is headquartered in Irvine, California, having moved from San Francisco in 2015. Sega's European division, Sega Europe, is headquartered in London.
