    As previously mentioned, IGDB has joined Twitch, and in our efforts to reap the full benefits of being part of a bigger team, we are implementing some changes.

    We have decided to migrate our current identity management to Twitch authentication. This means that we will only be supporting you to login using a Twitch account in the future.

    We took this decision because it will allow the IGDB core team to focus more on making IGDB better and developing new features instead of having to dedicate resources to maintaining a separate account system. We also want both the IGDB and Twitch community to be able to use both services as seamlessly as possible (by not needing to login when jumping between the two).

    This means that if you wish to continue using IGDB you will have to convert your IGDB account into a Twitch account. We have made sure to make this process as simple as possible because we really want you to stay :)

    This is actually a 1-month old news.
