Amazon, Twitch's Plan With Newly Purchased Online Gaming Portal Curse
Twitch, a game streaming site that is owned by Amazon, just purchased Curse, another video game company. The new acquisition gives Amazon direct access to Curse's different arms and specializations, which include video content production and editing, gaming database, game-mod management and the vital Curse Voice.
According to Business Insider, Curse Voice is incredibly important in the online gaming setup. For games like "League of Legends," Curse Voice is responsible for the communication between each and all players accessing the game. In fact, it is so vital to "League of Legends" that its developer, Riot Games, invested $30 million on Curse in 2015.
Not much is known about the actual deal, but Twitch's CEO Emmett Shear is excited and thrilled about the partnership that will develop. He said, "We've long been fans of Curse, which is an innovator in the games industry with a strong culture built around its offerings, from Curse Voice and Curse Client to Gamepedia. While it's still [the] early days for Twitch and Curse, we're kindred spirits in many ways and are looking forward to working together to enhance our users' gaming experience."
According to Venture Beat, Twitch has roughly 100 million users every month on its own. On the other hand, Curse has about 30 million users a month. And while Twitch users definitely outnumber that of Curse, Twitch has yet to provide its users with the kind of services that Curse has to over.
Curse's CEO is specifically happy about the reach his company will now have. "We here at Curse have been avid gamers and Twitch users for quite a long time, so we're thrilled to be joining the Twitch family," Hubert Thieblot stated.
"I'm really excited to see how we can bring Curse services into the Twitch network, and provide an unparalleled experience to both Curse and Twitch users. This is going to be terrific for the millions of players who use Curse, and for the larger gaming community."
