Last week, it was reported that Twitch had been the victim of a large data breach in which user information was stolen.
For those unfamiliar with Steam, it is a digital shop for Valve’s games. It has essentially become the de facto platform for online video game purchases. According to a tweet by Twitter user @Sinoc229, it was revealed as part of the data hack that Amazon may be working on their own version of Steam, codenamed “Vapor.”
According to the findings, Vapor will supposedly combine a number of Twitch features into it, including live streaming, as well as support for titles like Fortnite and PUBG, with the hopes of luring gamers over to Amazon’s new digital storefront.
There’s no word on when or if Amazon plans to debut Vapor. It’s possible that the corporation is just testing the concept, but we wouldn’t be surprised if they went ahead and launched it. Why not video games as well? Amazon currently dominates the web storefront for just about everything else, so why not video games?
