It seems like an end of an era for video game print magazine as two of the UK’s long-running video game magazines have announced that they are shutting up shop. Those magazines are EDGE’s rival GamesTM and the informative GamesMaster. Future, who own both magazine, have announced that the staff will be merged with other publications. GamesTM launched in 2002 and GamesMaster launched way back in 1993.
“Despite the company’s strong performance overall, unfortunately GamesTM and GamesMaster are no longer profitable parts of the business,” Future said.
“The decision was an extremely difficult one, but everyone here is enormously proud of what the magazines have achieved in their lifetimes.”
