G4 has confirmed that they will wrap up production for Attack of the Show and X-Play at the end of this year. Both shows will continue to roll out new episodes through December, with guest hosts and retrospectives expected to dot the lineup for the final season.

Attack of the Show and X-Play have been important for G4, and we want to acknowledge the creative people who have helped inspire and showcase the phenomenon of gamer culture,” says G4 Media general manager Adam Stotsky. “With more than 3,000 episodes aired between them, we have more than enough great material to honor these innovators and their amazing contributions as we bring both shows to a close.”

The canning of the network’s two longest running video game shows marks a likely change in programing away from such content. It is theorized that the network could team up with a magazine like Esquire or GQ to make more high-brow male content.
