Video Game Strategy Guide Publisher Prima Games Is Shutting Down

Roseville will shutter entirely this month while apparently a few employees will stay on at Indianapolis to publish remaining guides on the slate until March 2019 - including the soon-to-be-released Fallout 76 guides, still available to pre-order from Prima Games' website. There are many potential reasons as to why Prima Games is having to shut down, but the rise of the internet and "live" games are both sure to have played a hand in its demise. It was announced that the sales of these guides have fallen significantly.

"During a year-long extensive review, many new ways were explored to diversify Prima Games publishing; however, the dynamics for us of this fast-paced landscape have continued to prove hard".

Prima Games, the company we all know for making increasingly lavish strategy guides for almost every major video game release, is shutting its doors.


Parent company Dorling Kindersley announced the closure, which will see offices in Roseville, Indianapolis, and NY shutterring. In these guides would be helpful tips and tricks on how to do everything there is in any given game.

The shutdown comes as a result of what DK described as a "significant decline" in its video game business, reflecting a years-long change that has seen strategy guides shift from a printed resource to a primarily online one.

Pour one out for Prima Games.
