Let’s Play Video Games emerges from Destructoid UK’s ashes
The team behind Destructoid UK has been disbanded, with editor Laura Dale (right) and writers Joe Parlock (not pictured) and Vikki Blake (far right) departing the website.
Dale explained the situation on her Patreon page: “Our team being dismantled is apparently nothing to do with content quality or viewership of content, and due to seasonal financials and our team of three being the most recent additions to the salary payroll.”
Since the announcement, Dale has successfully launched a funding campaign in order to keep working with her team on a new website, named Let’s Play Video Games.
”The aim with LetsPlayVideoGames.com is to as effectively as possible transfer the work we were doing at Destructoid UK, add in more collaborative content, and have more room for expansion in areas we are personally interested in,” she told MCV.
The website is currently under development.
