GameTrailers is shutting down after more than a decade

For over ten years GameTrailers has provided video game previews, reviews, streaming and of course, trailers. They also hosted several shows and podcasts during this time. Today they have announced via twitter that they will be no more.

GameTrailers was purchased in the summer of 2014 by Defy Media, resulting in several long time members of the staff being let go. Still, a complete shutdown is a strange and seemingly out of nowhere move for the company to take.

UPDATE: During GameTrailers final Twitch stream, the staff mentioned that they found out this morning about the closure, and that they are not allowed to discuss it any further. Associate Editor for GameTrailers Ben Moore also posted confirmation on Neogaf about the staff learning of the shutdown hours before it happened.
