Twitch empowers developers to drive community engagement at every stage of a game’s lifecycle across all genres of games. In this session, winning plays from Borderlands 3, League of Legends, Fortnite and more will be spotlighted to show how Twitch programs (e.g. Rivals) and products (e.g. Extensions) created epic moments for their games’ communities. Developers will get a deep dive into how they can do the same and also get a chance to see what’s new in 2020 to give their games a chance to shine. It’s all part of connecting game developers to communities that love their games.


Studios will learn about the breadth of products and programs available with Twitch, giving them a playbook to have a conversation about growing their game’s awareness on Twitch. They will see how other games these services for developers and marketers to extend their game’s lifecycle from beta to post-launch.

Intended Audience

The audience for this talk is game developers and marketers interested in building and growing communities on Twitch.
