Company is currently looking into digital edition of mag for iPhone/iPad, says MD

Imagine Publishing MD Damien Butt has said that there is a possibility the magazine Total PC Gaming will continue in digital form on the iPhone and iPad.

The PC magazine's closure was confirmed yesterday when subscribers were told that issue 31 would be the final one.

Today, Butt said that a digital version was being considered, and he confirmed too that all of the staff on the magazine had been moved onto other magazines within the company.

"Imagine Publishing can confirm that following a period of review it has decided to close Total PC Gaming magazine with immediate effect. All staff have moved onto other magazines within the company. The website will continue to run as part of the NowGamerNetwork. Issue 31 will be the last to be published," said Butt.

"The support from our advertisers and readers has been fantastic and it's always a shame to close a magazine, especially one that is still profitable, but following the widespread delisting of PC games magazines from many magazine-selling outlets, we felt that the team deserved to be working on projects with greater future potential.

"We are currently deciding whether to continue to run a regular digital edition of the magazine on our popular global iPhone/iPad platform."

Imagine Publishing already makes a number of its titles available through the App Store, through a partnership with PixelMags.

Magazines such as iCreate and X360 are available to download at the price of 1.19.
