Stream Hatchet has released its latest quarterly video game streaming viewership report, indicating that while streaming consumption declined somewhat from its major second quarter spike, 2020 continues to see a surge in viewership year-over-year. The report states that streaming viewership across Twitch, YouTube, Facebook Gaming, and Mixer (before its closure) grew 73% for Q3 2020, surpassing 500M average weekly hours watched.
Twitch saw a decline from Q2 of roughly 375M hours watched, but remains the market leader, generating 4.7B to runner-up YouTube’s 1.7B.
In its report, Stream Hatchet also highlighted a number of female streamers, ranking 100 Thieves’ Rachel “Valkyrae” Hofstetter (who signed an exclusive deal with YouTube earlier this year) as the most watched.
