"UK gaming magazines GamesTM and GameMaster will publish their final issues next month, owner Future Publishing announced today. This news from across the pond hits close to home for me as someone who used to read GamesTM and has always loved the feel of a nicely weighted, glossy gaming mag.
“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,” Future told GamesIndustry.biz in a statement. The staff will apparently be “redeployed” across other parts of its business. Over at GamesTM’s Twitter page, the magazine’s current staff wrote: “We’re proud to say that gamesTM leaves as it entered; fiercely independent unrepentant, forthright, unwavering, driven, curious, passionate and above all else made by a small team of gamers who love that they get to do this for a living.” "
