. Future has plans to focus on digital growth and will redistribute all employees of the canceled magazines to other areas of the company.
Xbox World announced its closure on Facebook
, writing, "In all seriousness – we're really, really sad to see the mag end. We've always had loads of fun making it, and we hope you've had fun reading it. We're working on the final issue now, cramming in as many fond memories of the mag as we can."
This year Future US announced it would shut down Nintendo Power
and PlayStation: The Official Magazine
