Harvey Eagle, Xbox UK Marketing Director said: “Xbox On is now set for the next stage of its evolution and development with Yogscast, whose expertise in the YouTube space and knowledge of gaming are unrivaled. We look forward to partnering with them and taking Xbox On from strength to strength.

"We are very grateful to Attention Seekers, who have done a fantastic job establishing Xbox On over the last year and a half, successfully building and engaging with a passionate community of fans.”
