Shroud is one of many high-profile streamers to jump from Twitch in the fall of 2019, mainly to sign exclusive deals with Microsoft’s streaming platform rival, the Mixer. He is one of the well-known names on the list, next to Tyler “Ninja”; Blevins.
Microsoft accidentally shut down the mixer in July, less than a year after signing several multimillion deal deals with streamers. It leaves Shroud, Ninja and other big names for grabs, and it’s a game waiting to see where they all land. Facebook Gaming both Shroud and Ninja reported that their Mixer contracts cost “almost double”, although they both declined early, according to esports lawyer Rod Breslau. He said Shroud’s mixer contract was worth $ 10 million, while Ninja came in at $ 30 million.
Ninja has yet to announce any concrete plans, but he expanded his Twitch channel in early August and he streamed to YouTube in July. Ninja has 15 million followers on Twitch and 24 million YouTube subscribers.
