IGN laid off several members of its editorial team today. The move follows IGN's recent sale to Ziff Davis Media, which also plans to close subsidiaries 1UP, GameSpy, and UGO as a part of the restructuring.
"Our goal is to do fewer things and to do them exceptionally well," reads an internal memo from Ziff Davis CEO Vivek Shan. "In that vein, we want to direct all of our energy and work behind our two flagship brands: IGN and AskMen."
The full memo can be found below, detailing the Ziff Davis' strategy for the outlets going forward.
