IGN have confirmed that they have acquired and will be reviving GameTrailers which shut down in February 2016 after Defy Media restructured.
While GT itself has been saved, there are no plans to bring back the actual website but instead the GameTrailers YouTube channel will be used by IGN for game trailers along with all the archived videos that were previously uploaded to the channel. The YouTube channel will also host IGN’s game videos going forward “and maybe more” in the future.
The announcement came in the form of an announcement video which you can check out below:
IGN owns all associated assets that previously belonged to GT in the past. There were no details on what IGN paid for the name and assets from Defy Media.
