Amazon Completes Acquisition of Twitch

It looks like Twitch is now officially owned by Amazon.

Amazon’s $970 million acquisition of the game-centric streaming service is now complete according to a recent SEC filing. News of the online retailer’s plans to buy Twitch came back in August, but just what Amazon plans to do with Twitch at this point is unknown.

Earlier this year, there were rumors that YouTube was looking to buy out Twitch for $1 billion, but those rumors were dispelled once Amazon announced its new deal.

The streaming capabilities of Twitch have been available on the PlayStation 4 since launch and on the Xbox One since March.
