Sega profits in sharp decline

Net income down by more than a half

Sega has told investors its profits have fallen sharply following a buoyant business period last year.

Alien Isolation is Sega's next key release

For the April-June trading period, the corporation's revenue came in at £509 million, which is only slightly down on the £522 million it made during the same period last year.

However, the corporation's expenses pulled its profits down significantly. Sega's net income was £32 million for the three months ending in June, which is less than half of the £74.5 million profit it made the year prior.

Sega did not release any key PC or console games during the April-June period, though it did ship a handful of iOS games such as Sonic Jump Fever. Its most recent key releases date back to latter stages of 2013, when it shipped Football Manager 2014 and Rome 2 Total War.

The next key release is Alien Isolation, a first-person survival horror title developed at UK studio The Creative Assembly.
