Twitch Streamer Jack “CouRage” Dunlop Signs With YouTube Gaming
Yet another Twitch streamer has left the ranks of one of the biggest and most popular streaming platforms. Jack “CouRage” Dunlop is the next one to leave apart from Ninja and Dr. Lupo as he joins YouTube for gaming. This news comes after several game streamers and pro players left Twitch to join other platforms. Shroud, for example, left Twitch and switched to Mixer, a growing platform by Microsoft.
With big names like Ninja (aka Tyler Blevins) and Shroud (aka Michael Grzesiek) switching to Mixer, CouRage decided to leave as well. However, instead of joining YouTube, this one has decided to team up with YouTube Gaming.
CouRage Leaves Twitch
CouRage announced his big decision using his gaming organization 100 Thieves. Here is the video of it:
Jack Dunlop or CouRage is a familiar face to streaming and esports fans around the globe. He had over 2.1 million followers on Twitch and almost similar on YouTube as well. He is also known for hosting and commentating e-sport events, including Fortnite and Call of Duty. During his announcement for YouTube Gaming, he has also clarified that he will stay a member of 100 Thieves.
According to the YouTuber in the announcement, he has hinted at expanding his reach on followers. Possibly hinting towards making videos apart from gaming, like doing trick shots, cooking, ASMR and probably some other stuff. It seems that CouRage’s decision to choose YouTube Gaming as his streaming platform is also evidence that it is equally better as compared to Mixer.
CouRage shared with the The Hollywood Reporter:
“I’m very excited to continue expanding my relationship with my YouTube audience as well as leverage the platform for new collabs and experiences. This deal with YouTube allows me to create more content and engage with my fans in real-time.”
However, Twitch is not sitting idle either. Just a few months back the streaming service locked on to streamer Nick Eh 30 and Lachlan Power, who are majorly Fortnite streamers.
Regardless, the departure of among the biggest streamer names must have hurt the streaming service. Those who are departing are already starting a discussion on whether Twitch is as beneficial as they thought it was. Sypher PK, Twitch streamer with 2.6 million followers have also discussed the situation on Ninja.
