The industry of the videogame not for not even the weekend, but on this occasion you do not expect news from now on 15:00 today Friday, April 1, and next Monday, April 4.
The reason is not another that the implementation of important technical changes in our internal platform, which will prevent us from publishing new content during the weekend and to you comment, edit the accounts or create new users. During this period we are going to migrate all the current content to the new system, and that forces us to put the web “pause” for a couple of days, but once this process is finished everything will return to normal.
There will be no important changes in the functionality of the Web with the new version and design (at the moment) it will be the same to which you are accustomed, although you will notice some improvements in the mobile version and in the publication of comments. There will also be changes in the account system, using a general system (the ReedPOP ID) that will be common for all the websites of the Gamer Network, from Paper Shotgun to VG247, passing through Rock Paper Shotgun, Gamesindustry or VGC. Current users, in any case, do not have to worry too much… During the weekend we will migrate the users and you will only have to make login again once the new version is activated.
But as we said, most changes are internal. The new tools will allow us to work better, and the new platform will also allow our technical team to make changes and add features that until now were not possible. The dark mode on the web? Is on the way…
We appreciate your patience while we implement all these changes. See you next week!
