One of gaming’s biggest stars recently reappeared on camera, as Tyler “Ninja” Blevins went live on Twitch earlier today. The streamer teased an announcement of some kind with friend and former broadcaster Ben “DrLupo” Lupo yesterday. Although, no one imagined the announcement would be a return to Twitch, where Ninja spent years of his career. The stream consisted of the duo playing the new Fortnite v13.40 update and also revealed some insights into Ninja’s future. Hear what he had to say about his career in streaming down below.
A return to Twitch still in the cards for Ninja?
After the Mixer shut down in July, the blue-haired streamer didn’t quite know what he wanted to do. Many guessed that he might return to Twitch, as he called the site home for so many years. However, others felt that the divorce between Ninja and Twitch would cause him to consider YouTube or Facebook instead.
While it seems everything is still on the table, Ninja made a short return to Twitch. It appears he’s simply testing the waters on various platforms, as he went live on YouTube last month. The Twitch stream was short and sweet, but it did reveal a lot about the Fortnite personality’s current thoughts.
According to Ninja, his current situation can be compared to an “It’s complicated” relationship status on Facebook. It’s likely the streamer is debating between both YouTube and Twitch, as those are the two sites he’s gone live on.
At this time, it doesn’t seem like Ninja is leaning one way or the other. He’s expressed interest in both streaming platforms in the past, and each makes sense in its own regard. It seems we’ll have to wait a little longer to hear about Ninja’s decision.
