Mixer signs exclusive deal with Shroud

Mixer has signed away another big Twitch livestreamer. A couple months after Tyler “Ninja” Blevins committed to the Microsoft streaming platform, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek announced today that he too has reached a deal to exclusively stream gameplay and video through Mixer.

Wow. I’m legit stunned.

I think I’m more shocked about this news than when Ninja moved over. When he left Twitch, I felt that Shroud was poised to take that proverbial “top spot” on the platform. Now, with him moving over as well, I have no idea.

While it’s definitely a surprise, this is good news for everyone involved — save for maybe Twitch — as it’ll continue to encourage healthy competition between the two platforms and hopefully help streamers grow on both Twitch and Mixer.

You have to wonder who might be next…
