Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has officially confirmed he’s signed with Twitch, after previously leaving the platform to stream on Microsoft’s Mixer.
The 29-year-old announced his return with a short video with the caption: “A new chapter, only on Twitch.”
Following the shutdown of Mixer, Ninja has streamed on both Twitch and YouTube - although he hadn’t officially signed an exclusivity deal until now.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ninja has signed an exclusive multiyear deal with the platform - although it’s unclear how much it’s worth.
In a statement, Ninja said: “I am excited to get back to streaming full-time and connecting with my loyal fanbase.
“I really took my time to decide which platform was best and Twitch has been supportive throughout this process and understanding my overall career goals.

“In this next chapter, I’m going to make it a point to elevate and bring more eyes to underrepresented creators. I am looking forward to working with Twitch to demonstrate how this amazing community of gamers can make a meaningful impact.”
It’s perhaps not surprising Ninja would move back to Twitch, considering it’s the platform where he grew his legion of fans through Fortnite’s booming popularity.
Ninja has 15 million followers on Twitch already too, which likely made the decision a bit easier.
Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek officially signed with Twitch again last month, joining the likes of Pokimane and DrLupo.
