One of the biggest names in Fortnite, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins who is also a star streamer at Twitch, has announced his exit as he is going to stream exclusively on Mixer, a Microsoft platform.
On Thursday, Ninja announced the end of highly profitable partnership with Twitch which is owned by Amazon. He has added a link of his new Mixer channel on his Twitter account which indicates the next chapter of his career as a streamer. He also posted a clip in which he mentioned that he had been holding this news up for quite some time now.
Belvins said that as he looked at his career’s next step in gaming industry to achieve bigger goals, Mixer would allow him to have the perfect balance in success as well as opportunities. He added that his roots of gaming career started at Halo, so moving up with Mixer made him feel like taking a natural step.
Making a huge leap to Mixer, his new home, it seems as if he is ready for this new area and with his fans right behind him. He has already got 60,000 subscribers on his new and permanent streaming platform.
As per the reports, Ninja will make his Mixer debut live from Lollapaloooza on Friday, a music and culture festival in Chicago. He has also invited 16 year old Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf to join him on live stream, who is winner of Fortnite World Cup.
Belvins is a self-made millionaire who started streaming in 2011 with H1Z1. He has over 14 millions followers on Twitch and he streamed lots of other games than Fortnite. His true popularity came up when he started with Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and later got boost with Fortnite. With his biggest conquest yet, Ninja is now carving path to his new streaming platform.
