Microsoft, in partnership with Twitch, has announced plans to cut off all of its Twitch streamers, as well as the majority of its other video streaming platforms.
The move comes after the company’s parent company, Time Warner, agreed to buy a controlling stake in Twitch.
The Twitch deal, which was announced Friday, will give the two companies access to $500 million in investments.
Twitch also plans to open a standalone app, similar to the ones it offers on other platforms, which will allow users to access video content.
Twitch and Microsoft’s Twitch partner are expected to discuss the plan, which is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has said that he would like to see Twitch become a competitor to Netflix and other video platforms.
