Press Sneak Out by Jason Schreier at Kotaku
Not terribly surprising, but still a bummer. I’m curious where Jason will go next, presumably after his second book is published. I can’t see him going to a major, traditional video game new outlet. Kotaku itself has seen quite a wave of departures lately. Kotaku is now a staff of 16 writers.
The podcast Jason hosted on Kotaku is done as well, at least in its current form. Jason, Maddy Myers, and Kirk Hamilton (who left Kotaku in 2018) have started a new podcast called Triple Click. I wonder if other Kotaku staff will pick up the Splitscreen mantle.
On the bright side: Video games will no longer be delayed.
