Mac Gamer's Ledge Sold to MacGamer
12:10 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Yesterday Mac Gamer's Ledge released the news that this gaming web site has been sold to Hexsoft Studios, the owners of Macgamer.com. Later this year the two sites will be merged under the Macgamer.com name following a content redesign.
This marks the departure of MGL creator Mike Dixon, our colleague in the field of Mac games news and reviews for five years. Here's an excerpt from a FAQ which explains the issues behind this merger, as well as what might come of it:
Is MGL Founder/Editor-In-Chief Mike Dixon gone?The FAQ is the work of Corey Tamas, Macgamer editor and future editor of the Macgamer site following completion of the merger. Ryan Adams will remain the senior news editor, as will many of MGL's staff writers. We wish them the best of luck in their new venture, and offer sincere thanks to Mike Dixon for his contributions to Mac gaming over the years.
Not entirely, but he is stepping back from his more time-intensive duties with the site to spend more time doing other stuff that interests him. To quote Mike himself: "I need to free up some time to spend with my wife and family, start writing music again, and stop these nights where I only get 4-5 hours of sleep." I, on the other hand, thrive on 4-5 hours of sleep a night, so I suppose that makes me a decent candidate to take over some of his duties. Mike also hinted that he and his wife are looking to start a family soon, and as a father of two I can assure you that having kids allows for a lot less multitasking than you might think!
So does this mean the end of MacGamer's Ledge?
Absolutely not. The name will be changed in time, that is true... but all the things you go to MacGamer's Ledge for will still be there in spades: News, reviews, interviews, editorials, interviews, contests, forums and more. In fact, what you will see is a cleaning up and tightening of the various areas of the site. Departments will be updated, re-organized, pruned and polished up. In addition, many of the faces you're used to from MGL will be continuing on with Macgamer.com and will contribute more excellent work on a regular basis.
