Brighton, UK, 1st March 2013: Eurogamer Network Ltd, a leading video game media and events business, is pleased to announce that it has formally changed its name to Gamer Network Ltd, as it gears up for its North American launch.
Gamer Network attracts over 10 million unique users globally to its websites each month. The company publishes its own sites and operates a global network with licensees and partners. It is currently preparing for the launch of USgamer.
Founder and CEO of Gamer Network, Rupert Loman, commented: "We already have a base of readers, clients and employees in the US, as well as our first non-European licensee in Brazil, so this name change feels overdue. This move demonstrates how important our international aspirations are to us and gets us ready for our upcoming US website launch."
Additionally, the company’s live events subsidiary Eurogamer Events Ltd has been renamed Gamer Events Ltd, and its US subsidiary is now Gamer Network Inc.
2013 is set to be another great year for the business. As well as the US launch, traffic has grown strongly across all websites and the forthcoming Eurogamer Expo is set to attract 70,000 visitors this September.
