Future announce Edge Magazine staff changes

Friday, 25th May 2012 10:28 GMT By Alex Donaldson

Future Publishing has announced some staff changes and shuffles to Edge magazine, promoting Alex Wiltshire to Editor and appointing Nathan Brown as Online Editor.

Wiltshire joined Edge as its Deputy Editor in 2007, while Brown has been freelancing as a News Writer for the Edge website since December 2010. Tony Mott will continue in his role as Edge’s Editor-in-Chief.

“With Alex’s promotion to Editor and Nathan’s appointment to Online Editor, Edge has an unrivalled depth of talent and experience,” Richard Keith, Publisher of Edge said. “These changes represent the first part of our plan to grow the Edge brand globally. The Edge audience can expect to see a host of changes, improvements and new activity scheduled over the next few months as we reveal how the brand is changing to reflect the new realities of the games industry.”

The changes follow on from their announcement of shuffles on CVG yesterday. Best of luck to all in their new positions!

    I’ve found Edge horrible since the 2005/6 redesign of the mag. It used to be respectable to read in public.

    “the brand is changing to reflect the new realities of the games industry.”

    Sounds like “we’ll be covering Angry Birds more”.

    I think there’s a place for a respectable (meaning you wouldn’t be embarrassed to admit in public that it’s your favourite website) online games website that doesn’t focus on news.

    I think the latest redesign (last year at some point?) of the magazine was really good, but the website really lags behind – news is slow to be posted, the website layout itself isn’t great, there’s not much of a community.

    Keep the magazine though, and make it available text-only on Kindle. That’d be awesome.
