Sega announced on Tuesday that it is splitting the contents and solutions business of its Index Corporation subsidiary into its own new subsidiary on April 1. That new subsidiary will assume the name Index, while the old Index company with the game business will be renamed Atlus. In addition, the overseas company Index Digital Media, Inc. will be renamed Atlus U.S.A., Inc.
Sega took over the operations of Index Corporation last November. Index owns and manages Atlus, a former independent company and the current brand of games such as Etrian Odyssey, Shin Megami Tensei, and Persona.
