Streamer Ninja has been going pretty hard recently, pointing out possibly underrated Fortnite guns and teasing another huge celebrity-filled stream with the likes of Drake, Travis Scott, and JuJu Smith-Schuster.
However, it seems that the blue-haired one has abruptly decided to switch up his plans for the immediate future, stepping away from the grind for an unknown duration.
This sudden shift has seen drastic changes to the streamer’s accounts across multiple platforms, leading to a variety of reactions from fans.
How do you think Ninja will eventually return to the internet?
Ninja’s apparent break was announced at the end of a recent stream, which ended abruptly with the streamer saying: “I gotta take a break from streaming, dude, I’m going to lose my mind bro.”, adding “I’m sorry dude, I know we were supposed to play all day, but I can’t” and telling his chat: “I don’t know when I’m gonna be live next.”
This was later confirmed via his Twitter account, which now bears the moniker “User Not Found”, in addition to a fresh header saying “Time out” and a blank profile image, with the streamer having tweeted: “I just need a break...I don't know when I will be back, or where.”
Naturally, this statement, which is now Ninja’s pinned tweet, caused a bit of a social media stir, with YouTuber Ethan Klein, fellow streamer DrLupo and some fans expressing concern for Tyler Blevins and wishing him well.
However, others speculated that this sudden development could be the precursor to a possible streaming platform switch for Ninja, with the suggestion that Ninja looks to no longer be partnered with Twitch fuelling theories that he may sign with YouTube gaming or change up his streaming habits in some other way.
On the other hand, some of these users suggested that aside from YouTube, there’s no obvious new landing place for the streamer, as there was in 2019 when he jumped to Mixer in what turned out to be a rather ill-fated move.
