GamePro Shutting Down December 5th

Today is a sad day for many gamers out there. GamePro Magazine will be shutting down completely on December 5th. A spokesman from IDG (International Data Group) had this to say to everyone regarding the matter.


“…the ad dollars just weren’t there, and unfortunately layoffs of staff are being implemented. Fans of GamePro online will be able to access the latest games news, reviews, and ‘how-tos’ from the PCWorld editorial team. Visitors to will be redirected to the PCWorld GamePro channel on


GamePro has been around since 1989, printing out a new issue of their magazine every month with the latest in video game news and reviews of the most recent blockbuster games. It is a shame that such a magazine is wrapping up after having been involved in the industry for so long. All of us within the video game industry wish all of the staff that worked with GamePro Magazine the best in their future endeavors.
