Streaming platform Twitch has announced its intention to acquire online tech company Curse.
Curse was founded ten years ago and provides a number of services such as game-specific online community tools, a PC mod manager and secure VOIP. In all it attracts around 30m users per month across its network.
We’ve long been fans of what they’ve been doing and we know a lot of you have been too,” Twitch said. 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.
This acquisition will help provide gamers with the tools and resources they need to achieve the ultimate gaming experience, a mission shared by both Twitch and Curse. Together Curse and Twitch will help gamers connect, interact, and share information with one another.”
League of Legends maker Riot Games itself invested in Curse just over a year ago. It’s not far off two years to the day since Twitch was acquired by Amazon.
