It’s no secret that video game streaming has seen an uptick in viewership ever since global shelter in place orders have forced us to stay home. The video game and esports industry has seen tremendous growth. According to the Washington Post, Microsoft reported a 130 percent increase in online multiplayer traffic.
Additionally, Nintendo surpassed 13.5 million copies of Animal Crossing New Horizon which released in March at the beginning of the lockdown orders for most countries.
That being said, many gamers and non-gamers alike are turning to online entertainment - specifically video game streamers to be entertained or learn how to play.
