Ninja hosts first stream on YouTube, but is yet to announce a new platform partnership

Ninja hosts first stream on YouTube, but is yet to announce a new platform partnership

Following the closure of Mixer, top streamer Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins took to YouTube to host a Fortnite broadcast.

It was Blevins' first stream since Mixer announced its closure last month. The stream, which lasted for just over an hour and a half, peaked at a huge 165,000 concurrent viewers, according to data from Stream Hatchet.

While Blevins does have an active YouTube channel, he remains a free agent in the streaming space and is yet to confirm a new partnership with any existing platform following the closure of Mixer. The same goes for Michael 'Shroud' Grzesiek, another top streamer.

Mixer announced that it would be closing its doors this month, leaving its creators without a platform. To lessen the blow, Facebook Gaming is offering instant Partnership status to streamers that move over to them.

Blevins is yet to unveil where he will end up next, but the sheer size of his brand affords him some freedom in choosing where to go.
