Streamers who had signed exclusivity contracts with Microsoft’s Mixer have now been released from their contracts.
This comes after Microsoft unexpectedly shut down its game streaming service and partnered with Facebook Gaming.
Tyler “Ninja” Blevins was the biggest streamer to move to Mixer from Twitch, in a contract worth between $20 and $30M.
However, his audience failed to follow him and the streamer saw his follower count decrease by more than 10 million.
Microsoft has said it is up to the streamers to decide which platform they will move to.
Many streamers appear reluctant to switch to Facebook Gaming, despite reportedly being offered a $2,500 sign-up bonus.
Facebook’s past history with privacy issues is one of the big reasons Mixer streamers are staying away.
However, the company is not actively seeking exclusivity agreements with Mixer’s top streamers.
This means that top streamers, such as Ninja, are now free to return to their audiences on Twitch.
