In a surprise announcement, streamer Ludwig Ahgren announced he would be switching his streaming platform from Twitch to YouTube Gaming.
Streamer Ludwig Ahgren has announced that his new streaming platform will be YouTube Games starting tomorrow, November 30, the content creator posted a video to his Twitter account on Monday afternoon, surprising his fans and casual observers alike.
Even though Ahgren has been streaming and creating content for years, he’s already enjoying massive success in 2021 thanks to Subathon record. Apart from a few instances, Ahgren has been streaming for a whole month, playing games, watching videos, and even sleeping. Ludwig even broke Ninja’s record for most active subscribers on his personal Twitch channel with 283,066 users subscribing to his channel.
Ludwig’s move to YouTube was a huge shock because he didn’t promote the announcement ahead of time. After his last live stream on Twitch, Ahgren is contemplating his love for streaming and content creation, but there’s no hint of a big announcement coming. launch. He even appeared on Mizkif’s Parasocial game show earlier in the day and still no indication of what was going on.
Ludwig’s YouTube game announcement video shows him and business partner Slime driving through Los Angeles in a purple car. That’s the first hint that this could be an announcement, as similar videos tend to use purple as their signature Twitch symbol. Eg, DisguisedToast continues to play above expectations by switching between purple and red objects for viewers to guess whether he’s going live on Twitch or YouTube.
Ludwig’s video, on the other hand, leaves a little doubt, as the purple car explodes and Slime and him switch to a new red car. The video ends with a brief mention of how YouTube Gaming’s copyright system is more accommodating for licensed music and confirmed that Ludwig’s first date on the new platform will be November 30.
As mentioned, this is a big step for Ludwig Ahgren and a huge “opportunity” for YouTube Gaming. In recent months, the platform has been able to engaging both Dr. Lupo and TimTheTatman leaving Twitch and renewing CourageJD’s contract to continue streaming on YouTube for the foreseeable future. Ludwig is just next on the list of powerful content creators to make the switch.
It will be interesting to see if anyone else watches near Ludwig or is this for the rest of 2021. Since Twitch has been heavily monitored for its business (hence, the car explodes) ), content creators are likely to become more receptive to the idea of platform switching. But is one of the most successful Twitch streamers, Ludwig is certainly not cheap.
Twitch streamer Amouranth has over 4.7 million followers and is one of Twitch’s top streamers, having been a part of much controversy.
