Video Game Strategy Guide Publisher Prima Games Is Shutting Down

The long-running company, which has run for 28 years and even acquired competitor Brady Games along the way, will be closing all of its offices in Spring 2019.

Part of the DK publishing group, Prima Games has been releasing in-depth print guides for videogames since its birth in 1990.

Video game strategy guide maker Prima Games is officially shutting down, British publisher DK (formerly Dorling Kindersley ) told Variety on Friday.

DK CEO Ian Hudson released an internal memo making the announcement, according to a report from Publishers Weekly.

The decision was announced by the Dorling Kindersley division of Penguin Random House, and all three of the Prima Games offices at Roseville, Indianapolis, and NY will close its doors, affecting all employees working there. After this, Prima Games will cease to exist. While details about the NY office are unknown, the Roseville location is due to close later this month, while the Indianapolis office will continue on with a reduced staff until March 2019 to publish the remainder of Prima's now announced strategy lineup. Some of those working in the company's Indianapolis office "will stay until March 2019 to publish the remaining program".

20 years later, Prima Games began selling its guides on Steam.
