Games TM’s Samuel Roberts becomes PC Gamer editor

Former Games TM editor Samuel Roberts is the new editor of Future mag PC Gamer.

His previous roles include deputy editor at Play magazine and SciFiNow. He was also a finalist in the Rising Star category at the 2009 Games Media Awards.

He begins at PC Gamer on December 11th.

"I’m thrilled to be running PC Gamer at a time when PC gaming itself is at such a creative and commercial peak,” Roberts said.

With a deeply loyal audience for the magazine and a massive online following, I look forward to leading this remarkably talented team as 2014 brings gamers Steam Machines, Oculus Rift and other developments that will continually challenge the way we think about games.

As it no doubt was for many, PC Gamer was my first touchstone in writing about the medium and I associate the title with the highest of standards. PC Gamer will evolve as we continue to reflect the ever-changing nature of our subject, and we have the perfect editorial line-up to make that happen."

Future’s head of games Lee Nutter added: Samuel’s breadth of experience makes him the perfect candidate to build on PC Gamer’s continued success. He inherits a brand which continues to go from strength-to-strength, and he will lead a dedicated team to ensure PC Gamer is the go-to place for PC gaming.”
