Say hi to Curse, the newest member of the Twitch family

The past five years have seen the Twitch community grow in ways that most of us could have hardly imagined. From the very first Kappa to the very last KappaRoss, it’s been an amazing journey. Today we’re excited to announce we’ve agreed to acquire a company that will help our community grow ever larger yet stay more connected than ever.

Please join us in welcoming Curse, a leading global multimedia and technology company focused on content and products specifically for gamers, to the Twitch family.

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.

We’re just getting started and are hyped for the many possibilities that will open up with our new Twitch + Curse team. If you haven’t already, make sure to check out Curse for yourself.

Thank you for your continued support!

The Twitch Team
