A sad day for fans of PC gaming and an extra reason to hate this damned depression: FileFront, one of the most popular and best place for game demos and patches, will be closed by owner Ziff Davis on March 30. Just like that, it will vanquish. And it will be missed.
People who tried to visit the website yesterday were “greeted” by the following message: “We would like to give a warm thank you to all of you who have been part of the FileFront communities we have built together. Your support has had a meaningful impact for all of us here at FileFront. Again, we want to give you a sincere ‘thank you’ for your support over the years and wish you all the very best. “
That is, however, the unfortunate truth: income from advertising has lowered drastically, competition is tougher than ever and it’s getting tougher and tougher to maintain a website nowadays. At least a huge one like FileFront which had Terabytes of content. Farewell, FileFront! PC gamers will really miss you!
