DEFY Media Purchases Gametrailers On Eve Of E3 2014 Coverage


Even though Gametrailers is covering E3 2014 live right now, that doesn’t stop the ongoing nature of business from taking over. A press release has just been sent out, declaring that DEFY Media will be acquiring some of Viacom’s digital gaming assets. Such assets include Addicting Games, GameTrailers and Shockwave. Furthermore, Viacom will receive a minority interest in DEFY media.

We’ll be here all day covering the news and gameplay demos surrounding E3 2014, so keep it here at to stay informed!
