After eight years of development, Sega requested Bomber Games to remove their Streets of Rage remake last week. Sega released a statement yesterday explaining why they had the game taken down.
Sega is committed to supporting any fans that take an interest in our games, and where possible we do so by involving them in beta tests and other development, marketing or research opportunities. However, we need to protect our intellectual property rights and this may result in us requesting that our fans remove online imagery, videos or games in some instances.”
Do you think that Sega’s decision might dissuade other independent developers such as the teams behind Sonic 2 HD and the Segagaga English patch?
