RIP Gametrailers

Post by DP on Fri Jun 13, 2014 11:53 pm

Monday, Defy bought Gametrailers and a few other sites from Viacom. Today, they fired between half and two thirds of the staff, mostly senior members. 

I've never been a fan of Gametrailers, particularly, but this is a travesty nevertheless. GT was never claimed to be unprofitable to my knowledge, likely quite the opposite, so it's a big surprise that the buyer would fire that quickly, right after gaming's biggest event (to avoid publicity), and go right to rebranding.  I wish the best to those affected by this.

Wow.


Been a fan of GT for a long time, sucks that some of the people getting laid off were some of my favorites. I also wish the best for them
