Brandon Jones (The creator of GameTrailers) has today revealed that GameTrailers has been purchased by IGN and will now live a new life. It will become a YouTube channel which houses all of the archived GameTrailers videos as well as any new major game trailers that are released. The original team will play no part in the future development of video content.
This was the original idea for GameTrailer’s migration to YouTube however it was hard for them to get the idea off the ground with publishers.
It’s incredibly great that the archive of videos will live on for people that grew up with GameTrailers. It’ll definitely be an interesting development.
