You may know him as “Ninja,” but his real name is Tyler Blevins. He’s became famous from his live streams on Twitch playing games such as Fortnite. Today he announced that he signed an exclusive deal to do programming for Microsoft’s Mixer platform. Ninja begins his Mixer career on Friday at www.mixer.com/Ninja.
Ninja’s exclusive deal with Microsoft did not share any details at the time.
Microsoft is betting big with its Mixer platform by setting up exclusive contracts with creators within the gaming community.
Ninja set a viewership record on Twitch when music superstar Drake joined him online to play Fortnite.
Ninja has since built a huge online following across Twitch, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter making a combination of more than 41 million followers/subscribers across all platforms.
