EGM is back…..sort of.

Gaming magazine EGM (Electronic Gaming Monthly) shut down in January after nearly twenty years in print. In a surprising twist, EGM is returning later this year, courtesy of Electronic Gaming Monthly founder Steve Harris.

Read the announcement after the jump.

According to an announcement, Harris has acquired publishing rights and trademarks to EGM, with plans to restart the print publication in the second half of this year.

Harris calls the relaunch of Electronic Gaming Monthly a “welcome opportunity to continue delivering quality content to gaming enthusiasts,” saying the new EGM team has “exciting plans for the evolution of what will once again be a leading independent voice for the gaming community.”

The mag has the enthusiastic, but not necessarily financial backing of Ziff Davis.

“We are pleased that EGM is now in the hands of its original creator, Steve Harris, and wish him and the publication the best of success in the future,” says Ziff CEO Jason Young.

The press release states that we’ll hear more about the new EGM at next week’s E3 expo. For now, a placeholder site featuring the announcement, with links to the resuscitated mag’s Twitter and Facebook accounts resides at
