Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is streaming Fortnite’s latest update on Twitch right now, on a stream that’s hovering at over 95k viewers. It’s the popular streamer’s first stream on Twitch since Mixer shut down last month.


Ninja is playing with streamer DrLupo. He teased this last night on Twitter, though he didn’t offer any details about where he’d be streaming. (Update, 9:55am—The stream was a “last minute” decision, Ninja said while playing.) The duo is checking out Fortnite’s 13.40 update, which added much-anticipated drivable cars.

Ninja previously left Twitch for an exclusive deal with Mixer. Mixer shut down last month, shuttling its streamers to Facebook Gaming and leading to plenty of speculation about which platform Ninja would move to. He streamed on YouTube in early July. That stream ultimately drew over 160k concurrent viewers, much more than we’re currently seeing on Twitch.

Ninja updated his Twitch profile shortly after the announcement of Mixer’s shutdown in June, so his debut doesn’t come as a complete surprise. Fans of the streamer seem excited to have him back on Twitch, judging by the fast-moving chat. There’s still no word on which platform he’ll ultimately make his home.

Update, 10:13am—They’ve switch to playing the new Call of Duty season.

Update, 11:46am—Ninja posted some data about the stream’s numbers.

Seriously streaming culture has to be the biggest waste of time.  The whole point of video games was that they are interactive, unlike TV and movies.  I get hanging out with a friend and watching them play a game while you chill in their house because that is a full in person social interaction.  Watching some stranger play a video game just seems dumb.
