We’ll be back – temporary COVID-19 closure

Returning soon for more good vibes gaming.


We’ve been following the COVID-19 situation closely and we’re sorry to say that Platform will be closed from today until further notice. 

We have taken this decision to ensure we do our part in this global crisis to protect our communities, our customers and of course our beloved staff who have been working tirelessly to keep us all safe thus far.  The commitment to clean controllers has been truly remarkable!

Supporting essential services

Whilst we will be closed for business we’re hoping we can put the space and all those PCs to good use. We have offered our space to the local east London NHS team for use as an admin support centre in this time of need 💪

Platform is yours and ours

We’re a small and relatively new team committed to gaming, good times and positivity. We wanted to thank all of you for being a part of our journey to date.  Only with the support of you, our customers and partners will we be able to continue in coming weeks. So for this, we thank you.

It’s our birthday soon

It’s coming up to our 1st birthday (can you believe it?) and whilst we’re postponing celebrations for now, they most certainly will be happening soon. We have a few surprises up our sleeve for you and let’s just say that we hope to be back with a birthday bang 🎉 soon 🤞 and we can’t wait to see and celebrate with you when the time is right. 

Play. Watch. Be together. Safely.

We think gaming is one of the greatest joys, it’s our deepest passion and right now we think it can bring us all together. Online. 

In the meantime … we advise it’s time to level up and connect from home. We’ve pulled together some inspiration for you below. 

Stay safe, and be excellent to each other.

Love, The Platform Team
