Original FileFront Founders Save The Day

As reported last week FileFront was due to turn off the lights indefinitely as the sites owners Ziff Davis were looking to move away from the gaming scene and focus more attention on their other properties.

Upon hearing of the closing FileFront's original founders have decided to buy back the site and keep it open for gamers everywhere. Check out the full Welcome Home post by clicking here.
After learning about Ziff Davis Media's plan to suspend FileFront at the end of March, the original founders of FileFront made the decision to buy it back from Ziff Davis Media.

We're happy to announce to the gaming community that as of today, April 1st, 2009, FileFront is a completely independent company again and is no longer part of Ziff Davis Media. All previously suspended services should be active and working again. We thank Ziff Davis Media for their cooperation and willingness to keep the site and community alive.

Due to the very unfortunate timing of this event and related announcements on March 24th and April 1st (April Fool's Day), we'd like to make it perfectly clear that:

  1. The March 24th announcement about FileFront suspending its operation was NOT an early April Fool's joke.
  2. This announcement about the original founders buying back FileFront from Ziff Davis Media is also NOT an April Fool's joke.
  3. We're making this announcement on April 1st because the deal was completed today and we want to bring all services back online immediately.
  4. We would NEVER suspend FileFront as an April Fool's joke.
  5. We are happy to be back!
