USgamer Publisher Gamer Network Acquired by PAX Producer, ReedPop

ReedPop expands beyond events business, adding USgamer, Eurogamer, RockPaperShotgun, Outside Xbox, and more to its portfolio.

Gamer Network, home of USGamer, has been acquired by ReedPop, operator of PAX and the New York Comic-Con. The firm's events, websites, and video channels have become part of the ReedPop portfolio.

What does this mean for USGamer? Not a lot. Our team isn’t changing, our editorial vision isn’t changing, and nothing in Gamer Network’s structure is changing either - the sales, tech and management team all stay the same. We are expecting to go to PAX a lot more often, though. Hopefully we'll see you there at some point in the future!

USgamer is part of Gamer Network, along with sister sites Eurogamer, RockPaperShotgun, Gamesindustry.biz, Digital Foundry, and VG24. Gamer Network also publishes YouTube channels Outside Xbox and Outside Extra, plus organises and runs EGX and EGX Rezzed. ReedPop, a boutique group within Reed Exhibitions, produces PAX and New York Comic Con.

PAX East starts on April 5 in Boston.

"Bringing ReedPOP and Gamer Network together, PAX and EGX together – these are the kinds of mash ups you dream of. We are beyond excited to dream up new concepts that will blow the minds of fans all over the world," says Lance Fensterman, global head of ReedPop. At USgamer we're looking forward to seeing how we can work with ReedPop in the future to continue the site's growth into 2018 and beyond.

Rupert Loman, founder of Gamer Network added, "We’re delighted to join the ReedPop group. I’m a big fan of PAX and the company culture that Lance has created. The ambition and strategy that we share means we’re extremely excited about what’s next." Us too, Rupert. Us too!

Readers of USgamer and other Gamer Network publications will find that things continue as normal off the back of a great 2017. EGX and EGX Rezzed will continue in the UK, while the brand-new EGX Berlin is set for September.

Managing Editor

Tom started life on a circus in Australia before his family moved to the UK. His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
