Default DK to Close Prima Games

RIP Prima Games.

Quote:
DK announced the “extremely difficult decision” that they will no longer commission new Prima Games strategy guides following a “significant decline” in the video game guide sector, and the US-based imprint will be discontinued in Spring 2019 after 28 years of publication. The company says it is “now in conversation with all colleagues in Roseville, Indianapolis and New York who have been impacted by this announcement.” They declined to indicate how many employees will be affected, though there are approximately 40 people from Prima on LinkedIn.

The Roseville office will close mid-November, and some Prima Games employees in Indianapolis office “will stay until March 2019 to publish the remaining program.” Random House acquired Prima Communications in 2001, and Penguin’s Brady Games was combined under the Prima Games banner after the Penguin Random House merger.

I'm honestly thinking more that it might be "the first to go". I'm thinking we might see more like this pop up sadly enough.

Outdated yes, but was still quality product. There's nothing worse than morons on Youtube who put up shitty guides that have hundred of ads in them just to make a buck.
