Upcoming & Active Drops via API for Devs
Why is there not currently an api that allows for regular developers to access the current upcoming/active drops?
There are a couple of usecases for this (off the top of my head), for example;
- displaying all active drops for specific games on a website like a fandom.
- announcing upcoming drops via a discord bot.
Currently some games are creating drop campaigns with no official notices or schedules and with a short turn around. Drops go live within 2-3 hours of creation and last 2-3hours, if you're not sitting refreshing the drops page every hour you're likely to miss the drop campaign.
Creating an api for the devs puts the visibility of drop campaigns into the users hands and not the companies creating the drops - imo I don't see why this wouldn't also help get more traffic and revenue into twitch given better visibility of drops.
