Hey friends, welcome to the weekly Stream Report, a newsletter from Gaming Careers covering important news and updates in gaming, streaming and content creation.

This past week has seen a mix of changes to the streaming industry and announcements across the board: Streamlabs provided it's latest Quarterly Report of the live streaming industry, Twitch added multi-month subscription gifting and updated mod tools and several game developers have announced their games are being adapted for upcoming TV series.

Streaming Industry Quarterly Report

Every quarter Streamlabs produces a report looking into the details of the live streaming industry and how the individual platforms are performing against each other. 

Last year Mixer made headlines by signing exclusive deals with Ninja & Shroud - something expected to cause a big rise for Microsoft's live streaming platform. As we saw recently, that didn't turn out to be the case as the announcement was made that Mixer was closing its doors.


  • Twitch smashed its previously set records for hours watched, hours streamed, unique channels, and average concurrent viewership.
  • Facebook Gaming reached 822 million hours watched on the platform, tripling its numbers year-over-year.
  • The number of unique channels on Facebook Gaming increased 55% from last quarter and tripled year-over-year.
  • Hours watched on YouTube Gaming Live increased 39.6% quarter-over-quarter.
  • VALORANT was the most-watched game on Twitch in a single quarter with 534 million hours, beating Fortnite which peaked at 399 million hours in Q2 of 2018.
Twitch adds Multi-Month Gifting

It seems every week Twitch is adding new features and here's another: Multi-month subscription gifting. Currently only for Tier 1 subscriptions but for up to 12 months at a time.

Twitch updates Mod View, again

Twitch has also updated the Mod View portal again with further features. The main item this time is that any Mod returning to a channel can now catch up on any mod actions done previously.

Games Hit Mainstream TV

Bethesda announced their partnership with Amazon Studios for a Fallout series and DeadToast Entertainment's My Friend Pedro will also be getting a TV adaptation.

Thanks for reading! Have a good week,
