Gaming superstar Tyler “Ninja” Blevins announced today that he will be streaming on YouTube Gaming after the abrupt announcement of the upcoming shutdown of Microsoft’s streaming platform Mixer two weeks ago. He has not announced any details of a possible contract with the platform, however.
After Mixer’s announcement, Ninja took some time off streaming to figure out contract details before announcing where he would be going next, though most fans theorized that it would only be Twitch or YouTube, as he had reportedly denied an offer from Facebook Gaming.
Mixer will officially close down on July 22 with all existing partners being given offers to move over to Facebook Gaming. The move surprised many Mixer partners, as they learned about it after the official announcement.
Ninja had announced an exclusivity deal with Mixer on August 1, 2019, making the move from Twitch where he had streamed since the beginning of his career. The deal with Mixer was reportedly worth around $30 million for the streamer.
