The eSports industry is growing at a rapid rate, and it’s great to see industry powerhouses getting involved.

Gaming headset giant Turtle Beach is partnering up with TwitchTV to become its official audio partner.


GamesIndustry report that the partnership will see Turtle Beach providing equipment for Twitch eSports events. It should be a worthwhile move by Turtle Beach, as Twitch leads the way with eSports coverage.

Twitch currently enjoys a 34 million strong audience, who Twitch say spend and average of 90 minutes a day watching videos on the streaming service.

“We’re excited to partner with Twitch and provide them with our advanced tournament and broadcast products for their eSports and gaming events,” said Turtle Beach CMO Bob Picunko.

“We’re proud to have them as our official audio partner,” added Twitch CEO Emmett Shear.

“With the innovative features available in Turtle Beach’s audio gear, anyone in the Twitch community will be able to easily broadcast their games and audio commentary with professional quality results.”
