Twitch has opened a new headquarters in London, which will also act as its European base.
A video platform, Twitch enables gamers to broadcast, watch and chat as they play, where ever they are in the world. The site currently gets around 45 million visitors per month and has grown considerably in the past twelve months. It told MCV that it has seen UK traffic double to two million unique users during that period.
Situated on Carnaby Street in the City of Westminster, the new London office building features a full studio, which will enable games developers to stream their latest content live via Twitch. The company will also invite video producers to use its facilities.
The office will also house the newly established ten person European team, which includes Michael Thomas, formerly of GameSpot, in the role of sales director.
Commenting on the move to its new Carnaby Street office, Twitch’s regional director, Stuart Saw, told MCV: “This is a very exciting time for Twitch, we’re expanding to meet the phenomenal growth that we continue to experience across the continent.
“We’ve grown the Twitch Media Group to the UK and in doing so have added some exceptional people with a wealth of agency experience, something we feel is very important for our clients,” he added.

News bought to you from DeVono, the award-winning commercial property advisers, specialising in Central London office, retail and leisure space.
"“We are delighted have found a home at Seven Dials Warehouse and commercial real estate framework that is not just fit-for-purpose now, it enables us space to grow in the future. DeVono has helped us to realise our ambition of providing a sustainable and ‘appropriate’ long term home for the business.”"
"Having appointed DeVono in March 2016 to find our next high profile London office from 2018, we have not been disappointed with their high level of service and meticulous attention to detail from the very first day, through to signing the Agreement for Lease and beyond. They assured us during the tender process that they would be right by our side all the way through and not just appointed to “do the deal” and this is exactly what we received."
"We were very satisfied with the service provided. You helped us find the perfect office to meet our needs and were prompt and effective in negotiating the deal on our behalf."
"We appointed DeVono because we knew they would care and take the trouble to understand our business, our objectives and help us deliver on our commitment to our clients and our people. The outcome of the process has been entirely positive and surpassed all of our expectations. We would always choose to work with DeVono."
"I must also comment that the service received from DeVono has been exemplary. In what I have experienced to be the unpleasant world of estate agency it has been a real joy to work with you. You have been driven, proactive, reliable and extremely quick and responsive. The fact that you are pleasant to work with has been a bonus. Working with DeVono has been one of the very best customer experiences of my business career."
