Tyler “Ninja” Blevins made his Mixer debut today, streaming six hours of Fortnite Battle Royale to an average of 65,000 viewers. A much higher viewer count than what the streamer has been averaging recently on Twitch.
Ninja, a massively popular Fortnite player and livestreamer, announced yesterday that he will be streaming exclusively on Mixer going forward. Mixer is Microsoft’s livestreaming service and Twitch rival, though it hasn’t had quite the success as Amazon’s livestreaming platform.
Although the livestreaming industry reacted with shock to Ninja’s move to Mixer, there were still plenty of questions. Namely: how will Ninja’s viewership hold up following the move?
