Officials at Google and Twitch declined to
comment on the matter.
The report said the size of the deal could not be learned and
discussions between the parties were at an early stage. In
addition, the company was said to be looking at raising
additional funding instead of selling itself.
In September, Twitch raised $20 million in funding from Thrive
Capital, WestSummit Capital and Take-Two Interactive Software
Inc, among other parties.
