Twitch, the popular game streaming service, is to have its very first fan convention in San Francisco. TwitchCon will take place across two days on September 25th and 26th where viewers, Twitch broadcasters and developers can all sit and watch each other play in person instead of online.
Well, it’s supposed to involve a bit more than that, but at the moment details are extremely limited. The website for the event only gives a date – there’s not even ticket prices yet available. We do know however, that it will take place at Moscone West, the same place Apple and Google holds their annual developer conferences, WWDC and Google I/O. That should mean plenty of exhibit space and many opportunities for presentations.
Twitch has a massive following online, with millions flocking to the site to watch people play games. It’s success lead to a $970 million acquisition by Amazon back in September 2014.
We’ll bring you more details as they’re revealed.
