Gamepro dead

Online life did not save it

Long running computer game magazine, Gamepro has been shut down. The outfit moved to become a quarterly publication and now the November quarterly issue will be the last one ever.

While the death of a print magazine is not really news, what is suprising is that the GamePro website will be shuttered too. An IDG spokesman told IndustryGamers that the ad dollars just weren't there and staff will be handed their p45s and pink slips.

GamePro started as a monthly magazine in May 1989 and first appeared online in May 1996. It was one of the top read magazines along with Electronic Gaming Monthly.

GamePro Media said that it will move into growing its custom publishing and solutions business. This would see GamePro will work on creating custom content for vendors and events, like last E3's daily publication.
