Gamers who follow Fortnite and other games continually streamed on Twitch will know the name Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. Ninja is one of the highest profile of all game streamers, and a new report has surfaced that claims he landed a giant payday from EA for streaming Apex Legends.
Kotaku reports that Ninja was paid $1 million to play the game and tweet about it the day after it launched. Apex Legends has proven to be a smash hit with players and is giving Fortnite serious competitor in the battle royale realm.
Blevins makes serious money streaming games to Twitch and has said in past interviews he makes about $500,000 per month. Twitch is his domain, he has over 13 million followers.
A cool million bucks for streaming a game and tweeting is a big payday. It’s nice work if you can get it. Neither Blevins nor EA has confirmed the amount paid for streaming the game.
