Ninja Ditches Twitch For Mixer In Epic Twist


Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is one of the most popular streamers in the world, and the streaming platforms are fighting over him like a pack of rabid dogs over a piece of meat. Kudos to Microsoft then, as the famous Fortnite streamer has ditched Twitch and signed on with Mixer in an exclusive deal.

The news was announced by Ninja himself, via his Twitter account in a post that simply reads “The Next Chapter”, with a link to his Mixer page and a hilarious video.

In a follow-up tweet, he posted another video to voice out his sentiments and make things clear, saying:

“I have been holding on to this for quite some time and I’m just super excited to let everyone know.

I’ll be streaming on Mixer full-time now and I’m honestly at a loss for words. I’m freaking out in the best ways.

I feel like I’m going to get back to the streaming roots.”

While the terms of the agreement between Ninja and Mixer have yet to be officially revealed (like how much Mixer is actually paying Ninja, it’s probably quite a lot), this is a lucrative deal for both parties, but especially so for Mixer. Owned by Microsoft, Mixer has always been several steps behind streaming leaders Twitch and YouTube.

However, this exclusive deal with Ninja will probably change that, as fans of the streamer start to flock and migrate to Mixer. Almost immediately after the announcement was made, Ninja’s verified status on Twitch disappeared.

We all know of the console wars, but is this the beginning of a new streaming war? Maybe we should start asking streamers: which side are you on?
