Video Game Strategy Guide Publisher Prima Games Is Shutting Down

Katie Ramirez | 09 November, 2018, 21:23

It has been revealed that Prima Games, the largest video game strategy guide publisher in the USA, will be closing down after 28 years.

"I can confirm that the decision has been made to no longer commission new Prima Games strategy guides and the USA -based imprint will be discontinued in Spring 2019", a spokesperson said via email.

The decision was announced by the Dorling Kindersley division of Penguin Random House, and all three of the Prima Games offices at Roseville, Indianapolis, and NY will close its doors, affecting all employees working there. The decision has been made thanks to a "significant decline" in the physical video game guide sector.
