Top 10 streamed games of the week: Kingdom Hearts 3 enters the chart but will it stay there?

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. We also have a chart documenting the week's biggest content creators.

This chart covers the week commencing January 28th to February 3rd.

Most watched games

Fortnite manages to hold on to its crown for another week. A 5.2 per cent increase in views has put another few million hours between the battle royale and the second game on the board.

League of Legends has experienced a 7.3 per cent decrease in views, but remains hot on the heels of Fortnite. Dota 2 is in third after an 11.3 per cent increase in views last week. 

A fresh entry at four comes in the form of World of Warcraft. Blizzard's long-serving MMO has a 166 per cent increase in views last week, presumably due to the new raid, Battle for Dazar'Alor.

PUBG takes fifth place for another week despite a 2.2 per cent decrease in views last week. Resident Evil 2 has fallen to sixth place after entering the chart at third last week. Capcom's remaster of a classic has dropped over 40 per cent in views. 

CS:GO dropped from sixth to seventh after a 20 per cent drop in views. PUBG Mobile takes eighth place after a small yet impactful 1 per cent drop in hours wathced.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is a new entry in ninth place. The long-awaited conclusion to the Kingdom Hearts series racked up over 5/7 million hours watched across the board last week. A low entry for such an anticipated title but it has the potential to rise in the next week.

Overwatch closes the chart again for another week; the shooter has managed to stay on the chart despite a 17.2 per cent decrease in views. Its resilience has also seen Sea of Thieves fall from the top 10.
