About Gamer Network
Rock, Paper, Shotgun was founded in 2007 by four games journalism veterans with a mission to evangelise PC games with passion and wit, from the smallest independent releases to the most popular blockbusters. It has grown since to become one of the world's most popular PC games sites, employing seven staff (and counting!), and was acquired by Gamer Network in 2017.
Founded in 1999, Gamer Network publishes a range of video games websites including Eurogamer.net, the world's leading independent video games website with local editions in seven European languages, and USGamer, our USA flagship multi-format games brand.
The company publishes market-leading trade resource GamesIndustry.biz and popular YouTube channels such as Outside Xbox and Digital Foundry. It also represents several partner websites including VG247.com and NintendoLife.com.
In addition to its online publications, Gamer Network produces live public events and trade shows including EGX, the UK's largest gaming event, and its sister event EGX Rezzed.
