An AllThingsD piece first broke the news, but a Giant Bomb livestream has confirmed it.

The site will move into the GameSpot offices.

The sale comes as part of a wider deal that sees GB’s parent company Whiskey Media bought by BermanBraun. Most of Whiskey’s sites will remain with Berman, while GiantBomb and Comic Vine will be sold to CBS.

Giant Bomb was co-founded by ex-GameSpot alumni Jeff Gerstmann and Ryan Davis after the former was infamously and controversially fired from the site after his review of Kane and Lynch: Dead Men.

CBS Buys Giant Bomb

Two other sites owned by Whiskey — games-oriented Giant Bomb and comic book database Comic Vine — will be sold to another media company, which is rumored to be CBS Interactive.

Future Tense.

wait, a site co-founded by an ex-Gamespot employee is bought by Gamespot... they're desperate to get him back under their thumbs, huh... lol, they bought a whole company to do it.

i wonder how it would feel to be back working for a company that fired you.
