Ziff Davis Closes 1Up, Gamespy, and UGO
Posted on Thursday, February 21 @ 19:03:19 PST by Daniel Bischoff
In a memo to employees, obtained by Kotaku today, Ziff Davis CEO Vivek Shah lays out the reasoning behind the shutter of three major gaming publications: 1Up, Gamespy, and UGO. Of course this comes on the heals of ZD's purchase of IGN and subsidiaries from Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.
It seems apparent that 1UP, Gamespy, and UGO all heavily overlapped each other and IGN, so this was easily foreseen as a possible end. A lot of good folks are now looking for work as a result of this restructuring and we hope they find new opportunities quickly.
