In just three days, one of the earliest gaming magazines will be coming to a close. GamePro will no longer be an independent entity, as it will be absorbed by PCWorld.com.
The announcement was posted on GamePro.com earlier this week, and reads as follows:
“Thank you for your loyalty, support, and participation in the GamePro.com community. At noon on December 5, 2011, the U.S. version of GamePro online will shut down as an independent site. GamePro will become part of PCWorld.com (http://www.pcworld.com/gamepro) offering gaming news, reviews, and how-tos from the PCWorld team. Thank you to the entire GamePro staff for their hard work and dedication.”
GamePro has been churning out monthly magazines since its inception in 1989. In 1996, the magazine expanded to gamepro.com and has been regularly updating its site since. Earlier in the year, it was announced that the GamePro magazine would become a quarterly publication.
