WOW Classic is now the most popular game to stream on Twitch

Video game streamers are one of the most popular sources of entertainment for young people in today's day and age. Popular personalities like Ninja can pull in tens of thousands of viewers at any given time, and rake in cash from donations, subscriber fees, and merchandise sales. With so much influence, it's not hard to see why some games can see massive success (or failure) based on how popular they are on streaming platforms like Twitch.

The first week of its release, you could find more than 1 million viewers watching WoW Classic on various channels. By comparison, Fortnite usually draws somewhere in the region of 200k viewers these days. TwitchTracker has it as the most-watched game on the site, with over 55 million hours watched this last week alone. To give some context, the next-most-watched is CS:GO with 19.2 million, and Fortnite trails with a relatively unimpressive 17 million.

Classic is now the most popular game to stream on Twitch, boasting 156,000 viewers as of writing. By comparison, Fortnite has 122,000 (which is still a very respectable number, of course) viewers. Even Ninja, who has abandoned Twitch for Microsoft's Mixer, has mostly been playing WoW Classic recently.

WoW‘s been going strong for so long now, but I can see why some people might want to jump into a server that reminds them of the game at launch. It’s changed a great deal in the interim. And for those of us who weren’t there at WoW‘s jump, it’s a fun chance to see what gaming was like back in ye olden times.

Regardless of how you feel about Classic, it's interesting to see such an old game gain so much attention. We look forward to seeing whether or not the game will retain the attention of users in the coming months.
