Prima Games Shutting Down

While not officially closing until next Spring, the label will not be publishing any new strategy guides for the remainder of this year. The Dorling Kindersley department of Penguin Random House have made the "extremely hard decision" to discontinue the imprint from Spring 2019, according to sources contacted by EGMNow. The company's Roseville and NY offices will close in mid-November. "We are in conversations with the Prima Games team and can not comment on this further at this point".

According to sources speaking to EGM, all three of the companies offices are being shut down as a result.

The publisher's print guides all feature in-depth content, detailed screen captures, quick-reference tips, and professional strategies.

In 1990, Prima Games owner Ben Dominitz joined forces with writer Rusel DeMaria to create a video game strategy guide imprint initially titled "The Secrets of the Games". While Roseville's will shut down by mid-November, the Indianapolis office will continue publishing until March 2019. Prima Games later tried adapting to an increasingly digital world by offering eguides filled with interactive maps, streaming video, searchable apps, and more. This likely means the Super Smash Bros.

We wish all of the employees affected the best.
