Cue the milking of PSO2 Meseta popular titles Persona 4 and 3. Regardless of what actually occurred, we could observe that SEGA has otherwise been on a downward tendency financially over the last ten years. It is possible to have a peek at the printed financial reports on your own. While PSO2 has been one of the most prosperous titles, it does not cost as much to keep it in JP compared to hiring a new team and establishing new infrastructure to get it localized. It would be a massive threat for SEGA to attempt to force the match to the west. The need is still, but with all these foreigners already playing on the JP servers, SEGA may have been and decided it wasn't necessary to attempt to make that push. The failure of the SEA server did not assist with this decision, even if the cause falls upon Asiasoft's poor handling of this game.

We know that the foreign inhabitants about the JP servers is little when compared with the people playing on the NA servers, however, hindsight is 20/20. Speaking of 2020, input Microsoft. A number of decades ago, Microsoft opens Azure for gaming. While we don't know who approached who, it's very clear that there was an agreement between both companies: Microsoft can finance the PSO2 localization project in exchange for SEGA using and testing Microsoft's platform. The rest is history. SEGA didn't wait because they desired to. For one reason or another, they could not bring PSO2 to the west till Microsoft swooped in.

I also heard a rumor that the profits from Alien Colonial Marines were to help finance pso2 in the West, but we all know what happened to this match. Because I am all for it! Wait ? I thought that game funds were stolen to finance Borderlands rather than the game I heard, that's stupid.

That game is composed as a reduction to Sega. It is a rumor, but Jeff Gertsmann was the one who talked about it, and he is not some random. Granted, he's not super influential in the gambling arena, but he's very much a seasoned reporter and game reviewer, even if he is not a journalist; he has plenty of connections. Not long after the announcement of PSO2 for its west back in 2012, alot of downsizing occurred for the western divisions of SEGA, particularly SEGA of America. For some time SEGA needed to focus just on a few key franchises at the west, and it was just after SEGA of America was merged into Atlus USA at 2015 that things started to get better.

There was no way they might have handled a massive online game like PSO2 during those years, and even following the mix, they were busy with not only localizing more games from franchises that they could not in the years before, but they had been occupied with enhancing their localization procedure so the western discharges could be nearer to the JP releases. Even now in 2020 the current SEGA of all America/Atlus USA would not have been able to handle the entire PSO2 project independently (as we can see by the partnership between SEGA and Microsoft with MS hosting both the servers and cheap meseta pso2 community along with support being outsourced to ESTSoft).
