According to Kotaku, Twitch is selling off Curse Media to "Fandom", once known as Wikia. "We've signed a definitive agreement to acquire Curse Media from Twitch, Inc., including all media assets and employees," a letter to Kotaku reads. Fandom will be folding all of the Curse assets into its Gamepedia section. One site many of our readers will be familiar with is MMO-Champion, one of the largest World of Warcraft fan sites on the Internet today.

The move will streamline several of the wiki-type sites. By combining Fandom and Gamepedia, much of the overlap between the two wiki sites will be eliminated, though there may be issues with intrusive ad displays.

According to Kotaku:

n September, Kotaku reported that some community members running Fandom’s wikis were considering jumping ship to Gamepedia in part because of Fandom’s intrusive autoplaying ads. Now, they may be in a bind. When Kotaku asked Fandom how the site will look in the coming months, Fandom did not offer any specific details.

Curse Media has been part of Twitch for about two years.

The deal is set to be finalized in early 2019.
