Strategy Guide Publisher Prima Games Is Shutting Down After 28 Years

10 November 2018

Prima Games shutting down leaves just the one strategy guide publisher (Piggyback) left in the USA.

The publisher's print guides all feature in-depth content, detailed screen captures, quick-reference tips, and professional strategies.

Reported initially on EGM Now, the news was confirmed by the Dorling Kindersley division of Penguin Random House.

As of writing, Prima Games will no longer be releasing any new guides, aside from the ones that have been commissioned up to this point. Roseville will be closing very soon, in mid-November, Indianapolis will have a small selection of staff stay on until March 2019, and the NY office's fate is now unknown. Prima Games opted to aim for the collectors' market, with high-quality, hardcover books that often came packed in with extras and bonuses like art, controller skins, and more.

World's Oldest Cave Painting Of Animal Found In Borneo
A weathered section of a limestone cave deep in Borneo is home to the oldest known example of figurative drawings on Earth. The cave paintings also revealed that there was a major shift in the tradition of cave paintings thousands of year ago.

While not officially closing until next Spring, the label will not be publishing any new strategy guides for the remainder of this year.

The company's Roseville office will close in mid-November, while the Indianapolis branch will remain open until March 2019 to "publish the remaining program".

The decision has been made thanks to a "significant decline" in the physical video game guide sector.

20 years later, Prima Games began selling its guides on Steam.
