Future Publishing confirms magazine closures, but games titles safe

Future Publishing has confirmed it is to sell or close a number of titles in its portfolio, but all games titles are currently safe.

Future Publishing has confirmed it is to sell or close a number of titles in its portfolio, but all games titles are currently safe.

"We are exploring options to sell titles, but none are from the games portfolio," confirmed a spokesperson for the company.

Managing director Robert Price sent an email to all staff this afternoon detailing reasons for the refocus.

"Against a backdrop of challenging market conditions currently faced by all publishers, we simply cannot afford to invest on all fronts, so these changes enable us to support our core print businesses and our planned areas of expansion mid-term, particularly online," he said.

"A number of magazines will be sold or closed," said Price. Titles singled out include DJ, Total Mobile, Digital Camera Shopper and Home Entertainment Week.

Future publishes a range of videogame magazines, including Edge, GamesMaster, Xbox 360: The Official Xbox Magazine and PC Gamer.
