Shroud shares thoughts on the future of Twitch as big streamers transition to YouTube

"I don't think there's such a thing as killing Twitch."

Theres been a lot of talk about the future landscape of streaming after two of Twitchs largest creators, Dr Lupo and Timthetatman, both signed contracts to stream exclusively on YouTube. But one of the platform’s largest believes Twitch has nothing to fear.

During a recent stream, a viewer asked Shroud if he thought Twitch would die following the move of big creators, but Shroud quickly dismissed this, explaining theres always someone else to take their spot.


Yeah when there is a transition and somebody moves to another platform some follow and some stay, Shroud explained. I dont think there is such a thing as killing Twitch, I mean Twitch is so big.

The streamer then continued comparing Twitchs model to YouTubes video service strengthening his argument that while there could very well be a competitor for Twitch on the horizon, the service dying extremely is extremely unlikely.

After Timthetatman announced his decision to continue his career on YouTube, the discussion of platform would hold the future of streaming began. Even one of YouTubes biggest stars, Dr Disrespect, explained that right now, YouTube isnt as equipped as Twitch from a functional standpoint.

Other streamers also came out and shared their thoughts, with arguably Twitchs largest personality xQc reassuring his audience he has no plans to leave Twitch.

As Shroud hinted, Twitch is still the largest streaming website on the internet with its biggest rival being YouTube. Competition is healthy, and with YouTube expanding its endeavors into the streaming space, it should result in new additions to both platforms.
