GameTap Up For Sale
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Turner Broadcasting System recently revealed that it has made the decision to sell GameTap, its online game distrubution site. The choice came to light in the company's second quarter earnings report. Turner has not yet revealed if the service has a buyer.

From Gamasutra:

"There is considerable marketplace interest in the GameTap business and brand," said a Turner spokesperson of the pending sale. "We are considering various strategic options, but have reached no final agreement as yet. When there is a resolution, we will announce it."

GameTap also recently closed the doors on its editorial division to focus on its core business; just last month, it also shunted the popular but embattled Myst Online: Uru Live back to its creator, Cyan Worlds.
