Twitch has now lost its third popular streamer following an announcement by former Call of Duty caster, Jack “CouRage” Dunlop. He moves to YouTube, where he will be streaming exclusively.
In a build-up to the big announcement, the 100 Thieves streamer shared a few teasers on Twitter in the form of short videos. CouRage states that the move will open up more opportunities in his career as an entertainer.
This departure makes the third popular streamer to leave Twitch, and though his numbers are nowhere near that of Tyler "Ninja" Blevins and Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek, CouRage's absence will still make a dent. He currently has 2.1 million followers on Twitch followers and 1.85 million subscribers on YouTube, but the move will undoubtedly introduce some change, especially on the YouTube side of things.
TimTheTatman, another popular Twitch streamer, also dropped a couple of hints yesterday that could mean he will also be leaving Twitch for a rival platform. He paid a lot of attention to Shroud and CouRage’s recent departures and stated that he would "mix it up" this weekend.
Twitch has begun to lose its popular content creators and not only to Mixer, as CouRage's departure indicates. What the company will do to keep those that presently remain is anyone's guess, but will it be enough? We'll have to wait and see.
CouRage's debut stream will take place today, November 5, on his channel.
