Evil Geniuses and Alliance have become independent, player-owned organizations, Twitch announced Monday.
Twitch purchased GoodGame Agency, the parent company of both Evil Geniuses and Alliance, in 2014. The organizations are most known for their Dota 2 teams. The move clears up confusion around GGA that surfaced in August.
“While they’ll still be streaming on Twitch and we’ll continue providing support services, both teams’ brands, player contracts, and futures are now in the hands of the players and player-selected management,” a Twitch news release said. “They will have complete independence and we will work with them as we would any other esports team.”
