After a 19-year run, UBM Tech will cease to publish Game Developer Magazine, including the digital issues. The last issue will come out in July.
The company stated, “We’ve made the decision to shift away from print as part of a wider strategy change in our parent company UBM Tech, which is simultaneously shifting other print publications either to digital only or to website-specific content, orienting them to help support our growing community-centric events such as Game Developers Conference.”
In addition, UBM Tech stated, “However, we will conduct Game Developer’s major research (such as the Salary Survey) as part of Gamasutra’s remit going forward, as well as continuing to print historical and newly sourced game postmortems on Gamasutra.”
What are your thoughts? Are you sad to see them go?
