GAMEfest is cancelled… but retailer hints at 2013 return

Retailer GAME has officially confirmed the cancellation of GAMEfest 2012.

However, it has also hinted at a return to the consumer expo in 2013.

The event had previously been confirmed last year upon the closure of the first ever GAMEfest. However, after a hugely traumatic start to 2012 that saw GAME first enter and subsequently exit administration – albeit with the loss of 2,300 jobs.

I’m afraidGAMEfestwon’t be happening this year but we do have some cool things in the works,” the company said via Twitter, before adding. By the way – this doesn’t mean it won’t happen next year. *wink*”

GameStop has just moment ago announced its own consumer retail show in the US.
