Still, he'll be hoping lots of the 14.7 million followers he gathered on Twitch will be part of him in making the swap.
"I feel like this is a good chance to get in touch with my roots and really remember why I fell in love with streaming in the first place".
"I'll be streaming on Mixer full-time now and I'm honestly at a loss for words". For those who need a refresher on how Blevins became so popular, his career took off after Drake hopped on one of his Fortnite gaming sessions. It showed that Microsoft's streaming platform, Mixer, was trending at the time of Ninja's announcement.
It still isn't sure what might have happened for Ninja to change his mind (even though the money would be more than obvious answer), but it seems that Twitch accepted it as a gentlemen do (more or less).

The Detroit Tigers did not let the Major League Baseball trade deadline pass without making a couple of moves. Detroit Tigers traded relief pitcher Shane Greene to the Atlanta Braves pending a physical.
Ninja's first livestream on Mixer will be during Lollapalooza on August 2.
Despite improvement, Mixer has been unable to reach the popularity commanded by Twitch and YouTube Gaming. Like Ninja in 2017, Bugha is the undisputed best player in the world, where fans can tune in to watch his mechanical prowess and be amazed at his in-game procession while also getting to know the person behind the elite game-playing skills. Blevins will not only stream exclusively on Mixer, but will also represent and promote Mixer at events. That hasn't essentially translated to his streaming numbers; in accordance to Twitch Tracker, the variety of his paying subscribers on the platform declined from greater than 285,000 final March to about 15,000 in July, though he nonetheless has thousands and thousands of followers. That said, Ninja now has some new freedom.
It still isn't publicly known how much is Microsoft paid Ninja to make this switch, but given Ninja's profile these days and what a huge move this is, it has to be more than just few million. Richard Tyler Benjamin a.k.a. Ninja is a pro gamer and streamer on Twitch.
Separately, a report from CNN earlier this year claimed that the streamer made about $10 million last year.
