Strategy Guide Publisher Prima Games Is Shutting Down After 28 Years

Video Game Strategy Guide Publisher Prima Games Is Shutting Down

Video game strategy guide maker Prima Games is officially shutting down, British publisher DK (formerly Dorling Kindersley ) told Variety on Friday.

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. 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.

Imelda Marcos given lengthy prison term in graft case
Marcos, who is now a member of the House of Representatives, is running for a governor post in next year's general election. Sison said Imelda should be immediately arrested and return all stolen money from the Filipino people.

The announcement comes from Prima Games' parent company DK, which has shared its "extremely hard decision" to no longer commission guides and its intention of discontinuing all Prima Games operations by spring 2019.

The shutdown comes as a result of what DK described as a "significant decline" in its video game business, reflecting a years-long change that has seen strategy guides shift from a printed resource to a primarily online one. There's also no word on whether or not the closings will affect pre-orders for guides to upcoming games like "Super Smash Bros".
