GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns with its biggest event for gaming leaders on April 26-28. Reserve your spot here!
Elden Ring and Lost Ark had strong debut shows on Twitch, according to data from Rainmaker.gg, StreamElements’ analytics partner. Other than that, it was a relatively quiet month as viewership was expected to drop in February.
According to StreamElements, both Twitch and Facebook Gaming had a dip in viewership because February was shorter. Both also experienced a similar decline last year. This shorter time frame didn’t stop Lost Ark and Elden Ring from making their move. They were the second and eighth most viewed games/categories on Twitch.
Another bit of trivia StreamElements noted: Ironmouse has become the first Vtuber to reach the Twitch Top 10. She is also the first woman to be in the top 10 most subscribed channels of all time.
Jason Krebs, CBO of StreamElements, said in a statement, “VTubing as a format continues to grow the diverse landscape of the creative economy with Ironmouse and its milestone-setting month pushing the award to more than 100,000 subscribers.”
