Popular, and sometimes breaking, videogame blog MTV Multiplayer has put itself on hiatus as lead writer Stephen Totilo is no longer working with it. He explains the decision like this:
Because April 24 is my last day, and because our search for the best team to continue Multiplayer is underway but not yet complete, we’re putting the blog on hiatus.
In other words, you haven’t seen the last of MTV Multiplayer, but it’ll take some time to get it rolling again. Poor planning perhaps, but that’s the way it is sometimes.
Incidentally, I’d like to point you to Totilo’s second to last post about why he became a gaming journalist. It is an interesting read.
So where did Totilo go? From one videogame blog to another: He is now Deputy Managing Editor on Gawker Media’s Kotaku.
