New HQ includes a full studio so UK developers can stream their content live over the broadcasting platform

Games video giant Twitch has finally opened a full European base on Carnaby Street in London.

It comes as Twitch tells MCV it has doubled its UK traffic to 2m unique users over the last 12 months.

The company’s new ten-man European team includes former GameSpot account director Michael Thomas, who has joined as sales director, and Matthew Bowe, who joins as account manager.

Twitch says that roughly 50 per cent of its global traffic comes from the EMEA region.

The new HQ will include a full studio so that UK games developers can stream their content live over the Twitch platform. Video producers are also invited to use the facilities.
