Microsoft announced today that after the release of Titanfall and an update to the Xbox One to allow broadcasting on the game streaming service Twitch, that the resulting number of streamers has exploded.
On March 11 – the North American Release Date of Titanfall – 30-percent of Twitch broadcasters were streaming from the Xbox One. Within the first week of the update there were a total of 108,000 broadcasters from Xbox One, making up 22-percent of Twitch's total streamers. Titanfall has become the ost streamed game on the Xbox One resulting in 10 million minutes of Titanfall being broadcast since the release.
“Microsoft has a put a lot of time and effort into ensuring their Twitch integration would be a robust experience, and based on the amount of Xbox One owners streaming from their living rooms, the move paid off,” said Kevin Lin at Twitch. “This high rate of adoption for our console integrations has elevated our role in the entertainment industry. People go to Hulu to watch TV, Netflix to watch movies, and now they go to Twitch to watch and broadcast video games. We’re really fortunate for such a passionate and progressive community who made this all possible.”
