Publisher Future US says it will cease publication of PlayStation: The Official Magazine later this year, according to a report from Game Informer. The Holiday 2012 issue of the PlayStation magazine scheduled for Nov. 20 will be its last, ending a five-year print run.
PlayStation: The Official Magazine published its first issue in 2007. Prior to its official branding, the Future magazine was known as PlayStation Magazine, which launched in the fall of 1997. The magazine was renamed to PlayStation: The Official Magazine following the closure of Ziff Davis' Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine in 2007.
In August, Future announced it was closing Nintendo Power, a video game magazine institution for more than 24 years.
