Twitch integration with Minecraft is a natural fit as the open-world building game is continuously in the site's Top 20 games viewed every month since the service first launched in 2011.
"Minecraft has struck a very powerful chord with the Twitch community," said Matthew DiPietro, VP of Marketing, Twitch. "Its constantly escalating popularity illustrates that people love to watch video games outside of the headline grabbing eSports titles. Expect a watershed moment for both players and spectators once the ability to easily broadcast gameplay directly to Twitch goes live."
There's no announcement yet on when Twitch integration will make an appearance in Minecraft.
Minecon 2013 is currently running Saturday, Nov. 2 and Sunday, Nov. 3 and can, incidentally enough, be watched on Twitch by those unable to attend the convention.
