Ziff Davis Layoff Employees, Shut Down Major Parts Of IGN



Sad news today as IGN has announced that the 1UP, Gamespy and UGO sections of the company are being shut down and a large group of employees are being laid off.

A spokesman for IGN had a statement:

“We are focusing on our two flagship brands, IGN and AskMen. Unfortunately, as a result, we have made the decision to close sites and restructure our teams accordingly.”

IGN was bought recently by J2 Global which is the parent company of Ziff-Davis Media.

We hope all those affected get snatched up quickly by other companies and that they land on their feet soon.
