IGN Acquires GameTrailers

Brandon Jones, co-founder of GameTrailers, has announced today via a video that media website IGN has acquired the rights to the GameTrailers content and name.

For those who may not know, GameTrailers was formally owned by Defy Media and on February 8 of this year the website officially announced its closure after a long thirteen years. GameTrailers’ YouTube channel was also a part of this acquisition and as of now IGN has already added videos to the YouTube channel which include the Metroid and Final Fantasy retrospectives along with the video from Brandon Jones announcing that they’ll be updating the channel and managing the archived content.

 GameTrailers created quality videos before their closure and it’s assuring that someone will be keeping their content alive.
