• Square Enix promotes Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PS4 in seven day takeover;
• Leon Hurley announced as Kotaku UK News Editor.

Kotaku UK goes live with Square Enix taking over the whole site to promote the imminent release of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PS4. The complete takeover encompasses all ad inventory across desktop, tablet and mobile.

US-based Kotaku reaches 5.3 million passionate and engaged US unique users every month, plus another 1.1 million in the UK. The licensing deal means that from today, for the first time ever, the UK audience will have exclusive fully-localised content created and curated by Future. Kotaku UK sits alongside Future’s flagship portfolio of games sites, including GamesRadar and CVG increasing Future’s online Games footprint in the UK by 50% to over 3.3 million.

It was announced last month that Kotaku UK will be edited by former UK Games Editor of IGN, Keza MacDonald. Future today announces that Leon Hurley joins the site as News Editor. Leon joins Kotaku UK from PlayStation: The Official Magazine where he was Associate Editor.

Keith Walker, Head of Digital Film, Games & Technology at Future, says: “The launch of Kotaku UK allows us to offer our commercial partners greater reach than ever and a significant new vehicle to reach highly engaged gamers. I’m thrilled Square Enix are official launch partners, and it’s great to have Leon on board as News Editor his knowledge and passion for gaming makes him the perfect candidate for the role. Kotaku UK allows us to speak directly to a completely new set of gamers while giving current fans everything they love about Kotaku but with some added UK flavour.”

Paul Benjamin, UK Marketing Manager at Square Enix, says: “Kotaku is one of the most influential gaming sites and the UK launch is fantastic news for gamers and the industry. For that reason Square Enix is delighted to be partnering with them for their launch with our own launch of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PS4.”

The partnership with Gawker Media, which brings Kotaku to the UK, builds on the hugely successful licensing deal which saw Future launch Gawker technology lifestyle brand Gizmodo into the UK market in September 2011, quickly doubling its audience and making it the UK’s fastest-growing technology website.

Future’s Games portfolio reaches millions of gamers across variety of touchpoints online, print, digital editions, social media, video, mobile and events. Kotaku UK will attract a new and highly engaged UK audience to the world-famous site which prides itself on the culture of gaming.

Kotaku UK (kotaku.co.uk), with its unique take of embracing the game playing community as whole, perfectly complements GamesRadar’s insights and gaming analysis, and CVG’s cutting edge first for news approach, with only a 10% cross-over on audiences between all three sites.

Future will launch another Gawker Media brand, Lifehacker UK, the website dedicated to living better in a digital age, later this month.
