Future Publishing has announced the appointment of Tim Edwards as Editor of PC Gamer.
Having worked on PC Gamer since joining Future as a staff writer in 2002, Tim takes the Editor’s chair with immediate effect, following the departure of Ross Atherton for Activision Blizzard’s European PR team.
Working through the editorial ranks for the team, Edwards was previously promoted to features editor, before becoming deputy editor of PC Gamer in 2006.
Richard Keith, Publisher of PC Gamer, said:
“Tim has grownup with PC Gamer and we’re delighted to make him editor,” PC Gamer publisher Richard Keith stated. “He has a fantastic opportunity to develop the PC Gamer brand after the successful redesign, which has been amazingly well received by readers and advertisers.
“There’s a lot more to come from PC Gamer over the next 12 months and we’re really excited that Tim is the one who will be driving those changes.”
Tim Edwards himself added: “PC Gamer is the world’s biggest PC gaming media brand and I’m truly excited to get the chance to run it. At the heart is a phenomenal magazine with a strong team that I’m proud to lead.
“Our recent redesign has placed us dramatically ahead of our competition. My first job as Editor is to ensure that this new look and feel is properly bedded in, while ensuring that our stratospheric standards remain in place.”
