SEGA has been an early adopter of bringing its hottest properties to the mobile sector. One of the drawbacks of having so many games available on Android and iOS is depreciation. Some games no longer work on modern phones and others haven’t received any updates in a year. SEGA plans on scaling back on their portfolio and discontinue a number of titles.
In addition to the games being removed from the aforementioned app stores, SEGA will also be pulling mobile titles from the Amazon App Store and the Samsung App Store. The changes will be taking place over “the next few weeks”, with SEGA saying it doesn’t have anything else to announce at this point.
Some users have noticed that House of the Dead Overkill The Lost Reels seems to have already gone from Google Play store. Others have reported that Sonic Racing Transformed and Jet Set Radio is a bit flaky on Lollipop.
