A trio of long-running Australian PC and gaming magazines – Hyper, PC & Tech Authority and PC Powerplay – has just changed hands, with Future Publishing announcing that it has acquired the titles and staff from Nextmedia.
In an official release today, Future Publishing Australia – which publishes the official Xbox and PlayStation magazines, TechLife, Tech Radar, PC Gamer and APC – announced that they have purchased the three titles. The staffers working on them: editors Ben Mansill and David Hollingworth, along with Cameron Ferris, will also jump to the Future ship under the deal.
While Hyper and PC Powerplay will continue to be published as standalone titles, the release noted that PC & Tech Authority would be folded into APC. Furthermore, PC Powerplay’s online site would be rolled into PC Gamer, according to a post from the editor.
Welp – there it is. I'm still at the helm, and Future's got a pretty neat portfolio.
It's a bitter-sweet change, because there are some great people I'll no longer be working with, but it'll be nice to turn my focus back to print.
ALL THE WIDOWS TO HUNT. https://t.co/lU5fC256vk
