UK gaming magazines GamesMaster and GamesTM shutting down

UK gaming magazines GamesMaster and GamesTM will print their last issues on the first of next month. Future, the global multi-platform media company that publishes brands like PC Gamer, Kotaku, Xbox The Official Magazine, PlayStation Official Magazine UK, and more, has announced that GamesTM and GamesMaster are no longer being published due to sales.

GamesTM has been printed since 2002 and was originally owned by Image Publishing before they were bought out by Future. GamesMaster has been running for 25 years since 1993. The two magazines will be halted and the staff will be reassigned.

Future announced in a press release:

“Despite the company’s strong performance overall, unfortunately games™ and GamesMaster are no longer profitable parts of the business, which means that their next issues, on sale November 1st, will be the final editions,”

“The decision was an extremely difficult one, but everyone here is enormously proud of what the magazines have achieved in their lifetimes – an incredible 25 years in GamesMaster’s case – and we are currently deploying affected staff within the company.”

GamesMaster posted the following tweet:

UK readers will definitely be upset over this announcement. However, it’s nice of the publisher to assign the editors to other magazines and positions to keep their influence within the company.
