GamePro Throws in the Towel

GamePro Feb 1992

Earlier this evening, GamePro announced that their website would officially close its doors on December 5th. The move marks a sad, but inevitable end for the long-standing magazine as we know it. According to reports, some of the staff will be let go, while some editors may end up writing for PCWorld. The magazine published its final issue last October.

Given the state of print, it’s hard to act surprised by the move. In recent years, online outlets have given traditional magazines stiff competition, and with no retail outlet willing to exclusively back it, the magazine likely suffered from diminishing returns. That said, the company is looking to refocus their efforts elsewhere. GamePro will live on in name alone, and instead of the editorial content we’ve grown accustom to, the brand will now produce custom content for gaming events and promotions, like E3 or San Diego Comic-Con.

It’s a real shame to see the magazine meet such an end. wishes everyone involved the best of luck.
