Top 10 streamed games of the week: a five year old favourite makes an appearance

InfluencerUpdate.biz has teamed up with esports and streaming analytics firm Stream Hatchet to bring you weekly charts of the most popular games in the streaming space.

This chart documents the most watched games by hours across Twitch, YouTube Gaming, Mixer and Facebook.

Each week we'll be documenting the top ten most watched titles across all the major streaming platforms, so you can see which games are thriving among content creators and which titles are waning in popularity.

This chart covers the week commencing September 24th to October 1st.

Most watched games

 As usual, Fortnite is still holding the top spot with a whopping 50.9 million hours watched this week. However, the battle royale has only experienced a 3.88 per cent increase in watch time, which is significantly lower than its 83 per cent increase last week. 

League of Legends is still in second place following on from last week, but watch hours for the MOBA have dropped by 2 per cent. PUBG has crept up from fifth place to third, with a 7.41 per cent increase in watch time this week.

As expected, the release of FIFA 19 has seen the newest installment of the franchise shoot up to fourth place. A 74 per cent increase in watch time with 9.4 million hours makes FIFA 19 our grower of the week. 

Dota 2 is in fifth this week with a 14 per cent drop in watch times, followed by CS:GO with a huge 55 per cent drop off in watch hours this week. As predicted, it seems that the end of the CS:GO FACEIT Major has caused a drop in overall viewers.

World of Warcraft sits in seventh place, dropping three places since last week. The MMO saw a 36.6 per cent decrease compared to last week. Other Blizzard title Hearthstone has also dropped from seventh to eighth with a tiny 2.8 per cent decrease in views.

A surprise entrant at number nine this week - Grand Theft Auto V has made a return to the top 10, knocking Dead By Daylight off the chart. 

Overwatch is bringing up the rear after experiencing a 14.1 per cent drop off in watch hours. However, Overwatch's halloween event is just around the corner and is expected to bring players back in.

Overall this week we're seeing the esports titles drop off as they're inbetween events, an expected meteoric rise for FIFA and a random appeance from GTA:V.
