Ninja is currently streaming Fortnite with Dr Lupo on Twitch (opens in new tab). It's the first time he's been back on the platform since he departed for Mixer last year, but his Twitch channel with its almost 15 million followers is active once more, with around 84,000 people currently watching him mucking around in the battle royale. 

The streamer has framed this return as an impromptu event, so it doesn't mean that he's coming back to Twitch full time. No doubt he's being courted by multiple platforms now that he's free from Mixer, which shut down (opens in new tab) last month. 

Ninja allegedly made $20-30 million by moving to Mixer (opens in new tab), so snatching him up is likely going to cost whatever platform he lands on a hefty chunk of cash. He also streamed on YouTube (opens in new tab) last month, so he's playing the field a bit. 

His success in the world of streaming has also made him hungry for more of the spotlight, and he told The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab) that he's looking at "literally anything and everything in Hollywood," including movies, cartoons and voice acting (opens in new tab). Someone told him he was a "natural" when he filmed his cameo in Free Guy (opens in new tab), so they're to blame.

With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long or talking about his dog.
