Future Publishing closes popular games forum
Future Publishing has announced plans to close one of the most popular gaming forums in the UK.
GamesRadar, Future’s predominant videogames website, will be closing its UK forum on September 4th to shift focus to the publisher’s US equivalent, RadarNation. The forum, which has been active since 2002, is home to almost 20,000 registered members, many of whom encourage “lively, outspoken, funny, controversial and downright notorious game discussion” a Future representative stated.
This comes as particularly sad news to much of the D+PAD team. D+PAD Magazine originally started out as a smaller project put together by members of the GamesRadar UK forums. We’ll miss you guys :’(
Future is now encouraging its UK users to sign up to RadarNation, but most are instead choosing to register at GRcade.com, a new forum put together by existing GamesRadar users as a replacement to the lost UK forums.
We’ll be there. Will you?
