Although the video game strategy guide played an important role in growth, it is becoming less and less necessary as it enters the digital age. For that reason, known publisher Prima Games officially announced that it was closed.
The report is currently being published at the EGM and states that operations will be officially suspended by spring. The site also mentions that the closure will affect offices in New York, Indianapolis and Roseville. Roseville is scheduled to close by the end of this month.
The Indianapolis branch will have BioWare & # 39; s anthem. Closing doors in these large-scale operations is by no means an easy decision and Prima Games was one of the more complex parts of the game culture.
Founded in 1990, this Strategy Guide company has grown rapidly as its brand continues to grow. When Brady Games and Prima were merged under the Penguin Random House umbrella in 2015, Prima and its main competitors came together under the same name. Unfortunately, it was not enough.
On layoffs, the company said on the site, "We are in talks with the Prima Games team and can not comment anymore at this point." Our thoughts are the same with all those affected by this closure during this time.
It is difficult to say goodbye for 28 years. Especially for "old-fashioned" gamers who have grown up with a guide to completing the game experience and moving on to the next level. They have done amazing work over the years with awesome art, commissioned works from other sites, and detailed guides to the maximum of game play.
