GT_logo_withText-640x360

GameTrailers, the popular website for the hottest video game videos, is officially closing its doors after 13 years. The staff was informed of the news just a few hours before it was made public on NeoGAF and Twitter.

No word was given why the site is shutting down. We hope that the staff from the popular website has options for the future following this announcement.

Sad news as we loved their E3 coverage…. Let’s see if anything comes of this (who knows, maybe the some of the staff will form an alliance and make a similar website).
