Media company Future is closing six of its magazines (one gaming-related) including the long-running Official Xbox Magazine, according to a new report from Eurogamer. The website says the magazine folded last week, during which the last few remaining staff were let go.

In a statement, Future reportedly said that like "many other organisations right now", the company was being "forced into making difficult decisions".

"We have a duty of care to all our staff during this time and our focus is on protecting the business for them and for our customers. We have introduced a raft of measures to keep the numbers of lay-offs to an absolute minimum, including significant pay cuts for our Executive Team and Board. Whilst the decline in retail footfall impacts our magazine business, we are well placed with significant digital audiences and diversified revenues to continue delivering on our customers' changing needs at this time."
