AOL Likely to Shutter Gaming Site Joystiq in Larger Content Cleanup

According to numerous sources, AOL is likely to shutter its primary video game site Joystiq, part of an extensive house-cleaning of its underperforming content properties that is taking place over the next weeks. The site, which seems to have about a dozen staffers, was founded in 2004 as an extension of Engadget and as part of Weblogs, which AOL bought in 2005. More content closures are coming, said sources, and the company is also restructuring its sales organization.
