Media brand Vice is significantly scaling up its games editorial team, the firm says.
Earlier this year, the firm launched its Vice Gaming section.The UK arm of the popular website has one dedicated games editor, Mike Diver, and a host of freelance support. But the business is in the process of bolstering its team on a global level.
We are massively scaling up our gaming editorial internationally and bringing in lots of new staff,” said Diver.
Plus there will always be a very active roster of amazing freelancers. Some of the names I’ve already brought to the section are pure dream team acquisitions like Cara Ellison, Leigh Alexander, Andy Kelly, Chris Schilling, Matt Lees, Keza MacDonald and Aoife Wilson to name just a few – I’m really made up that they’ve been so excited to write about games for Vice.”
The outlet has been producing video content dedicated to video games, including its recent eSports documentary, which was released earlier this year.
The eSports documentary was fantastically received and is indicative of how we’re approaching video here,” he says. We have a successful formula with Vice video journalism: telling incredible, original stories in our own tone of voice, and getting those stories to millions of people across the world.”
