GameFront shutting down on April 30

One of the largest video game file sharing sites, GameFront, is closing its doors at the end of the month.

The announcement came in the form of a post to the GameFront website, thanking the fans for their years of support and reminding users to save any files they need from the site by the 30th before they no longer have the ability to.

Here is a transcript of the post:

To all of our loyal fans and site users:

We are sorry to announce that GameFront will be closing its doors permanently as of April 30, 2016. Since our founding as FileLeech almost 20 years ago, we have always strived to offer the best file hosting alongside quality gaming content. To all of our fans who have supported us throughout the years, we thank you for making us your destination for gaming files. Despite name changes, ownership changes, and staff changes, you have always made our jobs rewarding and fun.

If you have files that you would like to save from the site, you will need to make sure that you have downloaded them prior to April 30. Any files not downloaded by that time will no longer be accessible.

Again, thank you all for your support through the years. Game on!

GameFront began its life as FileLeech back in 1999, before being re-launched as FileFront. In 2010, it was acquired by Break Media and renamed to GameFront.
