Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is one of the biggest names in the game streaming world and today he made his first stream on YouTube after Microsoft surprisingly shut down Mixer last month.
Earlier today, Ninja teased the stream in a tweet and started his Fortnite stream alongside Dr Lupo, TimTheTatman, and Courage. There is no official announcement of an exclusive deal between YouTube and Ninja but we can expect a deal announcement soon with YouTube, Twitch, or Facebook Gaming as the streamers that had exclusive deals with Mixer were given options to switch to Facebook Gaming or any other platform.
Earlier when Blevins moved to Mixer with an exclusive deal it made huge news in the streaming industry with platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch were all trying to sign top-level streamers to their platforms. Ninja lost a notable count on his viewership after his move to Mixer from Twitch.
Ninja is the first streamer to have their own skin Fortnite and at his time at Mixer, he launched apparel in partnership with Adidas.
