Popular streamer Ninja, Richard Tyler Blevins has signed an exclusive deal with Amazon-owned game streaming service Twitch. However, any other details about the deal haven’t been disclosed.
Ninja is a popular streamer with more than 15 million followers and is best known for playing Fortnite, but recently he has started playing several other games like Valorant as well. This happened because Mixer, Ninja’s previous streaming platform Mixer was shut down and a partnership with Facebook Gaming was established.
Streamers who didn’t switch to a different platform could stream on Facebook Gaming, but Ninja has decided to stream on twitch along with popular CS: GO plyer and streamer Shroud who joined Twitch in August 2020 after Mixer was shut down.
Ninja stated “I am excited to get back to streaming full-time and connecting with my loyal fanbase, I really took my time to decide which platform was best and Twitch has been supportive throughout this process and understanding my overall career goals. In this next chapter, I’m going to make it a point to elevate and bring more eyes to underrepresented creators. I am looking forward to working with Twitch to demonstrate how this amazing community of gamers can make a meaningful impact.”
His response shows that it was quite a tough decision whether to come to Twitch or continue with Facebook Gaming, since his relation with Twitch wasn’t the best, and Facebook Gaming wasn’t as good a platform for streamers compared to Twitch. At last, Ninja has decided, and all you Ninja followers can watch him stream on Twitch now.
Michael Aragon, Twitch’s senior vice president of content, responded by saying “We are thrilled Ninja is returning to Twitch, Tyler is an iconic force in the gaming community, and it’s been amazing to see the impact he’s made on the industry and the broader culture. Gaming–and the people who love it–are being recognized by a broad mainstream audience now in part because of Tyler, and we know he’s just getting started.”
