After the shutdown of Mixer, Ninja and many other streamers were left without a home. Ninja has been radio silent on almost all social media pages, but on Wednesday, he made his comeback stream on YouTube!
While the world’s most-known gamer hasn’t had much success on Mixer, his return to streaming has long been awaited. With over 100,000 viewers before the stream even started, it is safe to say there is a ton of hype behind his return. But while he is streaming on YouTube, does it mean this is his permanent platform? It is still up in the air where he will go. According to game journalist @Slasher, Ninja is currently in negotiations with different streaming platforms.
Ninja still has the potential to return to Twitch, but it is unlikely. In the past, he has made comments about his frustration with Twitch since moving to Mixer. Another issue is the fact that Twitch had allowed streams with porn to appear on his channel after he left. With this in mind, we can imagine that he still has a few gripes with the Amazon-owned streaming platform. Of course, this could be changed depending on what any platform is willing to offer him. Money, however, might not be everything. With the close of Mixer, Ninja is still taking the $30 million deal that brought him over. Keeping this in mind, it is possible that payment isn’t the main motivator for a deal.
Whatever the case may be, Ninja will soon decide what platform he is going to commit to. Whether it is YouTube, Twitch or even… Facebook Gaming, Ninja is back in the streaming world.
