RIP: GamePro

Well this is kind of a sad outcome of tough times. Industrygamers is confirming that after a 22-year run that saw the transition of publishing from print to the web, GamePro is folding. This comes mere months after having shifted to a quarterly publication schedule to cut costs. Those measures were unsuccessful and now mass layoffs are sure to follow.

GamePro Media is restructuring and will now be known as “GamePro Custom Solutions” with a focus on custom publications such as the official E3 magazine. The editorial team will apparently be focusing on PC World, though how many will be spared in the layoffs is unclear. For now, let’s toast to one of the oldest publications devoted to gaming, one that was online even before IGN, and wish the jobless staffers the best.

Damn, this blows. I still have issues of GamePro from the early 90′s. Sad day indeed.
