Prima Games is shutting down after 28 years

Prima Games is shutting down after 28 years

Prima Games, the company we all know for making increasingly lavish strategy guides for almost every major video game release, is shutting its doors. The label will no longer publish new guides starting now, and it will officially shutter in the first half of 2019. After this, Prima Games will cease to exist. Roseville will be closing very soon, in mid-November, Indianapolis will have a small selection of staff stay on until March 2019, and the NY office's fate is now unknown. However, the Roseville office will close much earlier than its counterparts in NY and Indianapolis; at some point in mid-November of this year.

Commenting on the news, Dorling Kindersley explained the decision was an "extremely difficult" one to make.

According to a report from Publishers Marketplace, DK declined to note how many will be affected by this closure, but a look at LinkedIn suggest that Prima Games employed at least 40 people. But, no doubt, a financial necessity given the sheer volume of free strategy guides available on the internet today. Ultimate guide, for instance, will still be released.

20 years later, Prima Games began selling its guides on Steam.

Thanks to the rise of sites like GameFAQs - and major gaming publications like IGN commissioning their own online guides, which bring in monstrous amounts of traffic - print strategy guides have struggled for years now.
