On February 8th 2016 at 4:47 PM (PST) the official GameTrailers twitter account posted this tweet:

 

After 13 years of operation, GameTrailers is shutting down. The news came as a shock to many, but the site had been struggling since its 2014 acquisition by Defy Media (who also own The Escapist, GameFront, Break.com and several other media sites.) Days after that acqusition, over half of the GameTrailers staff was fired. Its also clear that many knew of the impending closure ahead of time, with the site's founder beating the official twitter account to the punch:

 

As someone who happened to be around during GameTrailer's early days, its sad to see the site go. But I can't feign shock or surprise. I can't remember the last time I visited the site. Originally positioned as a more focused competitor to YouTube's gaming content, GameTrailers struck deals with content creators like The Angry Video Game Nerd to try and poach YouTube's audience. But while GameTrailer's was fighting yesterday's battles, new entrants like Twitch.tv and the dozens of more focused gaming communities sprouted up. ESO Gold ESO Gold Buy Guild War2 Gold
