Veteran UK video game magazines GamesTM and GamesMaster are to close. Both mags are in the process of publishing their final issues, Eurogamer's sister site GamesIndustry.biz announced this morning.

Future, the publisher of both magazines, said staff would be "redeployed" at the company.

GamesTM, which launched in 2002, ran for years at Imagine Publishing until it was acquired by Future a couple of years ago. Since then, GamesTM has been published by the same company as Future's own Edge.

GamesMaster launched in January 1993, an astonishing 25 years ago. Both magazines' final issues arrive 1st November.

"Despite the company's strong performance overall, unfortunately GamesTM and GamesMaster are no longer profitable parts of the business," Future said.

"The decision was an extremely difficult one, but everyone here is enormously proud of what the magazines have achieved in their lifetimes."
