Earlier this year, reports circulated that Google had purchased the video streaming service Twitch for over $US1 billion, but today it seems there's a new suitor: Amazon.
The online retail network is in the final stages of buying Twitch, according to reports by the Wall Street Journal and The Information. The deal could be announced as early as today, the WSJ says.
This comes just a month after a VentureBeat report that the Twitch/Google deal had been "confirmed," which it appears was not true. In May, Variety first reported that Google was buying Twitch.
We've reached out to Twitch for more information and will update should they comment.
