Ziff Davis Announces IGN Continues Global Expansion to IGN Latin America, IGN Portugal and IGN Greece

Ziff Davis announced three new partnerships with regional media publishing houses to bring IGN.com to three new markets - Spanish-speaking Latin America, Portugal and Greece -- bringing IGN's total global footprint to 20 international editions in 15 languages, spanning more than 90 different countries around the world and reaching a global audience of 55 million unique users per month. IGN Latin America will be operated by Publimetro Mexico, a division of Metro International and publisher of Publimetro, a newspaper distributed throughout Latin America. IGN Latin America is scheduled to launch during third-quarter 2014 and will be published in 20 countries in the region, including Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Venezuela, bringing the brand to a Spanish-speaking audience of more than 500 million people. IGN Portugal is operated by Skift Media, a new media company formed by veteran gaming publishers with combined experience of more than 14 years in the Portugal market. Its team members have each led some of the most successful Portuguese gaming publications and aim to accomplish new heights with IGN Portugal. IGN Greece is operated by CowboyTV, a local leader in gaming media that has rapidly become the primary source of competitive gaming entertainment in the region since its launch in 2010. It launches IGN Greece with a wealth of experience in editorial, streaming video, brand sponsorship activities and events management. The new IGN editions will follow the proven model of curating and localizing the best of IGN's English language content while adding original written and video content specifically produced for local audiences, in Spanish for the Latin American countries, and in Portuguese and Greek languages for their respective markets. A Portuguese-language IGN edition specifically for Brazil is planned for later in 2014 under a separate partnership. IGN Spain will continue to be operated by Unidad Editorial's 'Marca' publishing unit in Madrid.
