Top 10 streamed games of the week: is Apex Legends about to slide off the chart?

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 April 15th to April 22nd.

Most watched games

To the surprise of no one, Fortnite triumphs in the charts once again. The battle royale behemoth experienced a 24.1 per cent increase in views last week, racking up over 39.8 million hours.

League of Legends is in second place, over 15 million hours behind Fortnite. A 17 per cent decrease in hours puts the MOBA at risk of being toppled again. Grand Theft Auto V takes third again, with a 4.4 per cent drop off in views. GTA: V is slowly on the decline but shows no signs of falling from the top three just yet.

CS: GO moves up to fourth place after a 16.2 per cent increase in hours watched. It's ever-so-closely followed by PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which experienced a 25 per cent increase in views last week. 

PUBG Mobile falls to sixth after being knocked down a peg by its console-based form. This is the first time for a while that original PUBG has seen more weekly views than the mobile port.

Dota 2 takes seventh after an 11.4 per cent rise in hours watched, followed by Overwatch which had a 12.5 per cent increase in views last week. Hearthstone views are down 30.6 per cent but that's enough to take the title from fourth down to ninth. 

Apex Legends closes the chart in tenth after a 17.2 per cent decrease in views. Apex has been slowly declining for weeks, and is in real danger of falling from the top 10 altogether.
