The staff of Computer Games Magazine, owned by Florida-based publisher TheGlobe.com, have announced the creation of a spinoff publication called Massive, focusing on massively multiplayer online titles such as World of WarCraft and PlanetSide.

The magazine's content, written by the Computer Games Magazine staff, will include news, features, and previews of upcoming MMO games. An included DVD will feature MMO demos as well as full games in some instances. The first issue of the magazine will be released on September 19th, 2006, and its proper quarterly run will begin by January 2007.

"The MMO market is growing at a tremendous rate, with games like World of WarCraft dominating the sales charts worldwide," said Computer Games Magazine president Jayson Dubin. "As more people enter online worlds and these worlds become a bigger part of their everyday lives, we know it's the right time to publish this magazine. We are positioning Massive Magazine as the ultimate guide for MMO communities."

"We are not only going to focus on the latest games but also the world of the MMO gamer," continued Dubin. "Since Massive Magazine will be the first publication dedicated solely to MMO games, we know it will be very well-received by the MMO gaming community," said Dubin. “We are confident this magazine will be a huge success."
