Twitch, a popular streaming service with more than 100 million community members, is adding a bit more to their plate by partnering up with Curse, a gaming multimedia and technology company with 30 million of its own users. Neither party has provided details as to how much money was involved in the deal and it’s not exactly clear what role Curse will play in the future.
“We’ve long been fans of what they’ve been doing and we know a lot of you have been too,” said Marketing Communications Manager Evan Freitas on the Twitch website. “As discussions with Curse progressed, we have gotten to know their exceptional team who shares our passion for gaming and are equally committed to supporting communities with an enriched, and more enjoyable experience.”
He also stated that their acquisition will “provide gamers with the tools and resources they need to achieve the ultimate gaming experience” and that by working along with Curse, they will “help gamers connect, interact, and share information with one another.” The feeling is shared by CEO of Curse, Hubert Thieblot, who talked about the deal in another press release.
“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,” said Thieblot. “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.”
