Sega Research and Development Dept. #2 (Sega R&D2) was a video game research and development division within Sega. It was the first department established specifically to produce console games. It continued as Sega CS. Several well known Sega developers got their start here, who have increasingly gained more authority in the company later on.

According to Mark Cerny, who later set up the Sega Technical Institute in Sega of America, the company was a sweatshop. Most of the time, the game only had 3 months development, and 3 main developers. Hardware enginner Hideki Sato said much of the same, lacking behind the arcade experience of the company.[1][2]
