ESA’s issued a statement confirming Crave’s exit from the body, saying the publisher still believes in its goals. Not enough to keep paying membership fees, clearly.
“We can confirm that Crave has decided not to renew its membership in the ESA,” said Rich Taylor, the ESA’s senior VP of communications and research. “We value each member of our association, but respect their decision. In conversations with Crave, representatives stated that they value their longstanding membership with the ESA and remain committed to the values and goals of the association.”
