Gamepedia's Parent Company Has Been Aquired by Fandom

By Cecilia D'Anastasio on at

Wiki site Fandom announced yesterday that they will be acquiring Curse LLC from Twitch. Twitch owned Curse for just two years.

Curse runs Gamepedia, a gaming wiki that competes with Fandom.

In a statement to Kotaku, Twitch wrote, “We’ve signed an agreement for Fandom to acquire Curse Media and make it part of their offering to gamer communities. . . Twitch will continue to focus on our priorities supporting streamers’ ability to earn a living educating and entertaining fans.” In October, Kotaku reported that Gamepedia may have been inflating Twitch views by embedding livestreams on their much-trafficked wiki pages.
