Future announces plans to close PSM3 and Xbox World

UK magazines PSM3 and Xbox World are to be closed by publisher Future.

The final issues of both mags, which are renowned for sharing content between them, will go on sale in Wednesday December 12th.

"After careful consideration, Future has made the decision to close Xbox World and PSM3 magazines with the final issues going on sale on December 12,” Future’s head of entertainment Clair Porteous stated in a statement on CVG.

"This decision has been taken as Future continues to focus on its strategy on accelerating digital growth across its international digitally-focussed brand business.

"Future’s gaming portfolio saw over 14m unique users for October 2012 – up over 20 per cent on October 2011. We intend and fully expect there to be no redundancies and will be looking to redeploy all staff within the business.

"Future continues to publish the highly successful Official Magazines for Xbox and PlayStation."
