Sega cancels Hyenas and other games not yet announced

With this, Creative Assembly will suffer layoffs in various areas of the company.

During the morning of September 28, it was reported that Sega would be canceling various projects. Among them are unannounced games and the multiplayer shooter Hyenas, which recently enjoyed an open beta to receive feedback before its official launch, but now even its studio Creative Assembly will suffer layoffs.

This was revealed through a review of its gaming business.

"In response to the lower profitability of the European region, we have reviewed the portfolio of titles of each development base in Europe and the resulting action will be to cancel 'Hyenas' and some unannounced titles in development," SEGA said.

“Accordingly, we will implement a reduction in work in progress for titles in development.”

Sega also plans to reduce its overhead in Europe, focusing on cutting costs at Creative Assembly, based in Horsham, England.

“We will implement the reduction of various fixed expenses in various group companies in the relevant region, centered on Creative Assembly Ltd,” he said. “We expect to incur one-time expenses related to the reduction of fixed expenses.”

Due to the structural reforms that Sega plans to implement, which will occur primarily in Europe, the company now expects to post a record loss for the current fiscal year ending March 31, 2024 of ¥14.3 billion yen.

Despite Sega's cuts, it will not be Creative Assembly's last breath

The developers of Hyenas have another installment, being none other than Total War: Pharaoh, which will be released on October 11.

Although the study has already confirmed that there will be layoffs, they assure that they will do everything possible to reassign whose employees have a role with the risk of being fired.
