It’s Game Over for GamePro Magazine

Long time readers of GamePro Magazine that covered our favorite games like Street Fighter II, will be saddened to hear that the long time gaming magazine will be closing down.

After 22 years of publication, popular gaming magazine GamePro‘s U.S. operations have been shut down by its parent company IDG, VentureBeat has learned.

Multiple sources within the magazine confirmed that GamePro employees, including executives, received phone calls first-thing this morning with the dreaded news. GamePro’s U.S. website, which has been online for 13 years, will be incorporated into a gaming channel at sister sitePCWorld on December 5. The majority of GamePro staff will be laid off.
