Ninja Abandons Twitch for Microsoft’s Mixer

Ninja has announced his departure from Twitch, moving to stream on Mixer full time.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, one of the top video game streamers in the world, stunned his fans worldwide by announcing that he would be leaving Amazon’s platform Twitch to stream exclusively on Microsoft’s Mixer.

The 28-year-old, who has 14.7 million followers on Twitch and as many as 50,000 viewers daily, broke the news on Twitter by saying, “The next chapter,” This was followed by a short video in which he explains:

“I know this may come as a shock to many of you, but as of today, I will be streaming exclusively on Mixer. I feel like this is a really good chance to get back in touch with my roots and really remember why I fell in love with streaming in the first place.”

He later tweeted:

“Over 100k subscribers have been redeemed so far on mixer! Don’t forget to head over now and redeem your free sub after signing up :D.”

While this highlights the streamer’s massive popularity in the esports community, the fact that Mixer is offering a limited-time offer to subscribe to his feed for free cannot be ignored.

Mixer is a Microsoft-owned video game streaming platform which was launched in 2016. It is a direct competitor of Amazon’s Twitch but has so far failed to match its rival’s popularity. After snatching Ninja, however, Mixer was seen topping the App Store, overtaking names like Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat in a highly positive sign for the Seattle corporate giant.

The move to Mixer is one of several major projects Blevins has lined up for the near future. He plans to author three books, a graphic novel, and a how-to on streaming video games. His works are expected to get published later in 2019.
