This is the reason why Kotaku “might” be shut down in the near future

By now, you have probably read (or heard) about Kotaku’s editor in chief Stephen Totilo crying over the fact that Kotaku has been blacklisted by Bethesda, and Ubisoft. Well, there is more to it than just that. In fact, things might be so bad that Kotaku “might” be shut down in the near future. And this is the reason why (the opinions belong to Kenay Peterson, The Gaming Ground).

That might be the outcome yes, but how soon will that happen? It´s hard to say, next year perhaps?

My guess would be 2016, shortly after the Hulk Hogan trial against Gawker is over (which would be in March).

They will not close down. Gawker is a cancer that we will never get rid of because humanity will always have an audience that thrives of vitriol.

YES!. Finally all this BS is being called out for what it is.

This is a very informative read.

Thanks for posting it.

Kotaku and similar websites should be shut down as soon as possible.

Totilo and everyone there who was responsible for the clickbait articles, the SJW ones, the really weird and sometimes dumb writings we saw there should never be employed on a website which has big investors in the background.

They should learn how it is to start an own website with almost no budget and try to gain an audience through quality.Through well written blogs that make sense after all and are not full of speculations and so much political correctness that it hurt.

I'd rather have Polygon go away, but let's be honest...does anyone think Kotaku will actually go away? I mean that would just make things too easy.

Polygon will be next most likely.

Won't stop there either, as a lot of these people and sites are connected in how they are doing shady business.

TGG_overlord2248d ago

Polygon is probably the next site that will go down in the future anyhow. Maybe, but the Kotaku people behind it will most likely just join similar sites (like Polygon for example).

WOW. This article said writers, are giving away their a$$ for hot stories. That's insane.
