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.
