Mojang confident feature will open up streaming to new audiences
Mojang vice-president of marketing Matthew DiPietro has announced that Minecraft would integrate the TwitchTV streaming service.
DiPietro told attendees at Minecon 2013 about the TwitchTV integration, saying, “Minecraft has struck a very powerful chord with the Twitch community. Its constantly escalating popularity illustrates that people love to watch video games outside of the headline grabbing eSports titles. Expect a watershed moment for both players and spectators once the ability to easily broadcast gameplay directly to Twitch goes live.”
DiPietro further expanded, “The integration will allow players to easily begin streaming their play to their Twitch account without having to faff about with software outside of the game. Placing Twitch within the game raises its visibility to folk who may not be too aware of streaming, a move that could spawn many new streamers.”
No further details were provided as to when the popular streaming service would be interested with Minecraft.
