GamePro magazine and website are closed forever

GamePro is closed. Gone. Done. The November magazine issue will be the last printed, and the website closes on December 5. Layoffs are underway, says IndustryGamers, though we don’t know how many will be affected.

GamePro started back in 1989 as a monthly magazine and quickly became one of the biggest in the business. The print business has been steadily declining for years, though, and the magazine switched to quarterly publication earlier this year. The money is still running out, so now they’re closing up shop.

The company, GamePro Media, is “refocusing its US business exclusively on its growing custom publishing and solutions business.” The new gig is under the name GamePro Custom Solutions. They will create custom content for events and vendors now. What a sad end.

What about the website? It will redirect to pcworld.com now. 

What a shame. Our best goes out to the staff.
