Future Publishing has announced that it will cease publication of PlayStation: The Official Magazine in North America.

The publisher confirmed its magazine closure to Game Informer today, revealing that the last issue of the magazine will be its holiday 2012 issue.

PlayStation: The Official Magazine - also known as PTOM - was founded as the independent publication PlayStation Magazine in 1997.

In 2007 Future Publishing acquired rights to the magazine, and established a partnership with Sony to re-brand it as PlayStation: The Official Magazine.

Future Publishing also owns and runs PlayStation Official Magazine in the UK, though there has been no indication that there will be a change with the UK branch.

Earlier this year, Future Publishing also announced it will shut down Nintendo Power magazine, with the final issue arriving in December.
