Well, the Fortnite Pro who is out of question one of the best players in the world and also one of the most popular game streamer is in headlines again. Yes, it is none other than Ninja. Richard Tyler Benjamin a.k.a. Ninja is a pro gamer and streamer on Twitch.
He has taken a decision to switch over to Mixer. Mixer, by Microsoft, focuses on playthroughs of video games and also includes live streaming of games. And obviously, Mixer benefitted by leaps and bounds with the announcement.

Just after the announcement Mixer went to be the top mobile app on the store. This is what is called a Pro Gamer Move. Ninja announced the news to his fans as followed,
“I have been holding on to this for quite some time, I’ll be streaming on Mixer full-time now and I’m honestly at a loss for words.”
However, Twitch is still not at loss. A new gamer has started to stream games on Twitch and he is none other than Ray Fisher.
Ray Fisher is an actor and is famous for portraying Cyborg in Justice League.
Ninja also promised fans that even after a change in platform, there will be little to no change in the content he provides for his fans. Twitch didn’t flex to this announcement, as they showed that there is no dispute between Twitch and Ninja. Twitch commented,
“We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours. We’ve loved watching Ninja on Twitch over the years and are proud.”
Well, what made the switch between the platforms still remains a question for fans and the world. Maybe Microsoft decided to pay him twice or thrice his normal pay? Or was it mutual? Or just a Pro Gamer Move?
Well, we leave that to your expert mind until something comes up officially!
