OTK launches PC building company Starforge Systems

Content creation collective OTK has announced its own PC building company, Starforge Systems.

The company: OTK is diversifying its offering.

  • Starforge Systems is joining the competitive landscape of PC building, utilizing components from brand partners.
  • It'll also produce content by streaming daily on a "partnered Twitch channel with over 3,000 concurrent viewers" before later expanding beyond scheduled content with one-off streams and videos.
  • It believes it will stand out from the competition due to being creator-led, placing emphasis on the quality of the components instead of "marketing" like companies with a similar product offering.
