Posted by at 1:35 pm on December 1, 2011

In sad news, GamePro game magazine and its website are to close after more than 20 years reporting on video games. Due to the weak advertising market, owner IDG has decided to close the publication and lay off staff.

The title started in 1989, moved online in 1996 and recently moved the print version to a quarterly format. But due to the weak advertising market, parent company IDG has decided to close the publication and lay off staff.

“Despite doubling our uniques and page views year on year, GamePro has been shut down,” said editor Jaz Rignall via Twitter.

The website will redirect to PCWorld.com as of December 5 and the GamePro Media division will focus on contract publishing.
