League of Legends creators Riot Games has invested in media and tech company Curse.
Curse is best known for its wiki engine Gamepedia but also runs a number of recognisable fan sites including Hearthpwn and Futhead. Between them this portfolio attracts some 28m monthly visitors and over 1bn page views.
Riot really believes in what we’re doing and where we’re going,” Curse CEO Hubert Thieblot said. This investment boosts our efforts to continue creating what I believe to be the best communication tool in gaming.
In the last year, we’ve seen the size of Curse Voice grow from nothing to over 1m active players. We’ve added support for most of the top 200 games in the world and are deeply integrated with some of the most popular games our players play.
This is, of course, exciting and positive news for us. We’ve known Riot for a long time, and know that Riot, like us, cares very deeply about the core gamer. I’m excited and confident that this will be good for Curse and for the millions of players we serve via Curse Voice.”
