Future to spare CVG from publication cuts

UK gaming site CVG will not close down this year following a round of cutbacks at its publisher, Future, MCV reports. CVG will decrease its writing staff to three – it currently has five full-time employees plus support staff in the US and Australia. Future will review CVG in December.

In May, Future announced a restructuring effort that would result in the loss of 170 jobs in the UK. Future handles gaming publications OXM, PC Gamer, Gamesradar, Edge and CVG.

Future planned to focus its attention on Gamesradar, the bigger US brand, but support for CVG and attempts to purchase the site prompted Future to keep it around through December at least, MCV reports. There's no word on the fate of Future's other gaming holdings.
