Bundle Stars, a digital retailer that sells video game bundles and individual keys at discounts, is changing its name to Fanatical on November 1 according to a press release from the company.

If you’re one of those fine folks who like to save a few bucks when you’re buying your games, you might have come across Bundle Stars at some point in your search for vidya on the cheap. The site has been around for a few years now, and the people in charge have elected to change things up by creating a new website with a new name: Fanatical. The Bundle Stars Youtube channel put out a trailer hyping up the name change:

Existing customers of the old site don’t have to do anything – the transition will happen automatically once Fanatical comes online. They will continue to sell games, offer bundles, and put pre-orders on deck just as they always have. A new Fanatical Blog will be launched alongside the new site to keep gamers informed about the latest happenings in the gaming news world. A whole bunch of background tinkering will be taking place as well such as a better search engine, a faster site, and a brand new look for the same great deals on video games.

Bundle Stars has been around since 2012 when it was launched by Focus Media. It has sold over 40 million game keys in over 200 countries around the world. Fanatical will officially come online as a new home for great game deals on Wednesday, November 1, 2017. If you’d like to read more about the new site or stare at a countdown, you can swing on over to fanatical.com.
