Prima Games is the company we all recognize from its amazing strategy guides for almost every major video game out there, at least for the past few decades. This company has been running for over 28 years and it has been successful to such a level that it even acquired Brady Games.

However, it has been officially disclosed that this long-running company that has been working for over 28 years will now be shutting down come spring of 2019.

It is at the moment utilizing this time to finish all of the outstanding projects. With that being said, the parent company DK has also ceased commissions for new guides.

All of this news was released in an internal memo announcement by DK CEO Ian Hudson. This is what the report reads,

“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 difficult. This enormously dedicated team has made every effort to turn the business around, but challenging market conditions have unfortunately worked against them.”

Moreover, it is to be added that even though Prima Games is a long time running a publishing company, recently though it has not been doing good. With a lot of competition by online content that challenged its own content, video walkthroughs, wiki guides and such.

It was about time they had to face the facts. Having said that although it is not official it appears that about 40 employees will be affected by it.
