Earlier this week, Twitch announced they will be acquiring Curse Inc., a “leading global multimedia and technology company focused on content and products specifically for gamers.” They’re probably best known for the voice client that shares the same name but they also provide various video game wikis, tools, guides, databases, news and fan communities, from League of Legends to Minecraft.
In the announcement, Twitch said “We’ve long been fans of what they’ve been doing and we know a lot of you have been too. 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.”
To what extent Twitch will utilize and integrate Curse’s various services is currently unclear but it will be interesting to see to say the least.
