Future Publishing end Kotaku UK License

So, not the end of Kotaku UK as such - because it is licensed from Kotaku in the US and someone else might take it on… it’s just that future have decided not to renew.

Wonder how much money Future Publishing make these days? I mean, in the past they were literally the big G of computer/gaming/tech publishing. Whilst they are still a major player, other online channels (like Youtube) really killed their niche.

Anyhow - departing letter:

Well as much as it sucks for people losing their jobs, I fucking cannot stand Kotaku, they’ve got worse over the years too.

FuturePublishing seem to be shitcanning a lot of publications recently, so I suspect they’re close to going into administration.
