German publisher Computec has pulled the plug on the U.S. edition of its games industry news publication, at least on paper. The edit staff of MCV's American print publication will stay with the company to launch a new web based version of the magazine to debut early this year. The more established German and British editions of MCV will continue to publish on paper. The free news magazine faced fierce competition in a crowed market, going head to head with Gameweek
and Games Business
since its launch in 1998. Computec says it will launch two new consumer magazine in 2000, but hasn't commented on the subjects.
