EGM Is Dead….
Back from Holidays in France and I have a sad news. Electronic Gaming Monthly, which launched in March 1989, will stop production.
This month’s January issue will be the last published, stopping short of their 20th anniversary. Ziff Davis, their publishing company, sold the 1UP Network to Hearst Corporation’s UGO Entertainment but EGM wasn’t part of the deal do to overlapping of staff.
EGM isn’t the first to end though. In 2004 Ziff Davis ended publication of XBN, in 2006 they stopped the Official US PlayStation Magazine and last year Games for Windows Magazine (former Computer Gaming World) went under.
These are grim times and it’s sad to see all these old publications from our youth disappear. The Internet will not be denied.
Birth: May 1989 Death: January 2009
