EGM, 1UP Publisher Ziff Davis Files for Bankruptcy

Publishing house Ziff Davis Media announced today that it has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy due to mounting debt that now totals between $500 million and $1 billion.

Ziff Davis is the publisher of such well-known gaming standards as, Electronic Gaming Monthly, Games for Windows, and PC Magazine.

If approved by the court, the company will be tasked with restructuring its finances. An ad hoc noteholder group is planning to pay up to $24.5 million to keep Ziff Davis afloat during the Chapter 11 case.
