IGN Entertainment and Reset Media expand to rest of Nordic region

10/10/12 - IGN Entertainment, the world’s leading games media company, today announced that it has expanded its agreement with Reset Media AB to the rest of the Nordic region, following the successful launch of IGN Sweden ( http://se.ign.com) earlier this year.

The first new edition as part of the expanded deal, IGN Denmark ( http://dk.ign.com), launches today under editor Kristian West, formerly editor of Eurogamer Denmark and the Danish edition of Super Play magazine.  Under the partnership, dedicated sites for Finland and Norway will also launch in coming months.

Effective immediately, Reset Media is also handling all IGN advertising and sponsorship enquiries across the region – Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway.

Reset Media was founded in 2004. The regionalized IGN editions complement its respected portfolio, which includes the LOADING.SE website and LEVEL, the award winning multi-format magazine. 

The combined IGN/Loading network has grown to become the #1 in its gaming category in Sweden in the last six months [source: KIA Index – June to September 2012]. IGN.com is the world’s most popular games and entertainment network [source: comScore – August 2012].
