Join gaming leaders online at GamesBeat Summit Next this upcoming November 9-10. Learn more about what comes next. 

GamesBeat, the gaming site where business meets passion, is getting an upgrade today. The team is happy to announce that Rachel Kaser is joining to help cover video game news. She is a talented writer who has spent years covering this space for The Next Web and as a freelancer, and now she’s bringing that expertise to help GamesBeat stay on top of what’s happening next.

Kaser joins us as staff writer alongside lead writer Dean Takahashi, reviews editor Mike Minotti, and senior editor Jeff Grubb. That means you should see a lot of her byline every day on It also means that if you have a gaming-related story you want to pitch, you should reach out to her. The best way to do that is to send an email to our tips inbox.

You should also expect to see Kaser at future GamesBeat Summit events. We are excited to add her voice to both our news coverage and the wider discussions we have about the market. This will ensure that GamesBeat remains active and relevant.

We have plans to expand even further in the future, but until then, join us in giving Rachel a warm welcome.


GamesBeat's creed when covering the game industry is "where passion meets business." What does this mean? We want to tell you how the news matters to you -- not just as a decision-maker at a game studio, but also as a fan of games. Whether you read our articles, listen to our podcasts, or watch our videos, GamesBeat will help you learn about the industry and enjoy engaging with it. How will you do that?
