The list of gaming publications to cease production is growing. Publisher Future US confirmed to Game Informer that PlayStation: The Official Magazine's Holiday 2012 issue will be its last. No further information regarding why the magazine is coming to an end is available.
PlayStation: The Official Magazine editor-in-chief Roger Burchill remarked on Twitter, "And…I think it's time I say 'So long and thanks for all the fish,' and take a little break from Twitter. Check you on the flip side."
According to marketing material documents, the magazine boasted a circulation of approximately 139,000 and an audience of 956,320.
PlayStation: The Official Magazine is the second gaming-focused publication that Future US has canceled recently, following the closure of Nintendo Power in August. Additionally, the cancellation of PlayStation: The Official Magazine comes one year after GamePro shut down after 23 years of continual publication.
