Popular Fortnite Streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins might start streaming exclusively on Youtube very soon.
Ninja is a popular American Streamer, YouTuber, Professional Gamer, and Internet Personality. He has been the face of Fortnite since Fortnite Battle Royale started rising in popularity back in 2017.
Ninja Streamed Fortnite with popular American musician Drake and broke the concurrent viewer record on Twitch. Later Ninja broke the all-time concurrent viewers on Twitch again with more than 667,000+ live viewers.
In August of 2019 Ninja left Twitch and started streaming exclusively on Mixer. He was the first big streamer that made the move from Twitch to Mixer. Ninja used to average 70k viewers in his streams during his time on Twitch which was double or triple than any other Fortnite streamer at that time.
But recently Microsoft has announced that Mixer will be shutting down all of its operations side activities and merge with Facebook Gaming. Apparently Ninja was offered double the amount of his initial deal with Mixer for exclusively streaming on Facebook but he opted out. So Mixer had to end the contract and he is now free to stream on any platform that he wishes. Rumors say he made more than 30 million dollars buyout from Mixer for opting out of the contract.
Ninja Moving to Youtube?
A lot of people had been wondering for some time where will Ninja move after Mixer shuts down. Some people said Twitch, Some said YouTube. Nobody is sure as Ninja did not disclose any information about this topic.
Recently a slip-up, most probably by Ninja gave us hints to which platform he is going to live-stream on. He might have signed an exclusive deal with Youtube. Recently a Livestream was scheduled by Ninja’s Youtube account of over 24 million subscribers. Which indicates that he might be moving to Youtube Livestreaming.
Recently Pewdiepie also signed an exclusive deal with Youtube. He live-streams only on Youtube leaving his previous platform DLIve. So it makes sense for Youtube to also make a deal with Ninja because he used to have 70k+ viewers every day on Twitch.
Hypex tweeted out this screenshot of a Livestream scheduled by Ninja that was apparently not supposed to be public.
So No matter what platform Ninja decides to Livestream on he will have a lot of viewers and there is no doubt about it.
