Popular video gamer and prominent Fortnite livestreamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is reportedly in talks with multiple livestreaming services, including YouTube, according to sources. He has not yet signed an exclusive deal since Mixer–his previous home–was shut down by Microsoft. But Ninja streamed Fortnite today on YouTube with a group of other streamers–TimTheTatMan, DrLupo, and Courage–attracting more than 100,000 viewers.
“Ninja is currently in negotiations with streaming platforms and no exclusive deal has yet been signed, including YouTube,” esports consultant Rod “Slasher” Breslau’s sources said. “Today’s YouTube livestream from Ninja is all on his own. Maybe he’ll stream on Twitch too.”
Earlier this week, Ninja’s wife and manager, Jessica Blevins, tweeted that this week “will be fun.” This likely suggests some kind of announcement may be imminent; that may relate to the YouTube stream above, which marks Ninja’s first stream in several weeks.
Ninja left his massive Twitch platform for an exclusive deal with Mixer last year. However, Microsoft recently announced that the livestreaming service would close up shop after July 22. Where Ninja will go now remains a mystery, but it was spotted earlier this week that Ninja was testing a YouTube stream on his official channel.
