Strategy Guide Publisher Prima Games Is Shutting Down After 28 Years


The long-running company, which has run for 28 years and even acquired competitor Brady Games along the way, will be closing all of its offices in Spring 2019.

"DK announced the extremely hard decision that they will no longer commission new Prima Games strategy guides following a significant decline in the video game guide sector, and the US-based imprint will be discontinued in Spring 2019 after 28 years of publication". The label will no longer publish new guides starting now, and it will officially shutter in the first half of 2019.

"During a year-long extensive review, many new ways were explored to diversify Prima Games publishing; however, the dynamics for us of this fast-paced landscape have continued to prove hard".
