The popular strategy guide company is shutting it's doors.

Prima Games, best known for making numerous strategy guides for the most popular video games, is shutting it's doors after 28 years in the business. Founded in 1990, the popular guide series helped gamers of all ages and skill level to progress through millions of titles through out the years.

DK, the publishing company behind Prima, announced that the studio would be shutting down in weeks. According to EGM Now, It's California office will close down in mid-November of this year and its Indianapolis offices in March of 2019. It's unknown when it's New York office will close. 

DK CEO, Ian Hudson, had this to say:

“During a year-long extensive review, many new ways were explored to diversify Prima Games publishing. However, the dynamics for us of this fast-paced landscape have continued to prove difficult."

“This enormously dedicated team has made every effort to turn the business around, but challenging market conditions have unfortunately worked against them." 

We here at GameSkinny wish all it's employee's the best of luck in finding work, inside or outside, in the gaming industry.
