Following in the footsteps of Ninja and Shroud, a third Twitch streamer named Cory "King Gothalion" Michael leaves the Mixer platform. Michael has 1014,724 followers on Twitch, where he mainly airs Destiny 2 and Borderlands 3, and while he may not be as big a name as the previous Mixer gets, he has a specialized fanbase that will probably follow wherever he goes.
Michael has released a video explaining the decision, emphasizing the value of having "platform-level input".

"Working more closely with Microsoft and Xbox will not only help us accelerate this which we do, ”says Michael,“ but it will also help us drive everything that has always been important to the channel, which is good in the game. All of which help broadcasters gain recognition by mentoring rising broadcasters, raising money for charity, and launching events like the GuardianCon in GCX. "
Michael will be exclusively broadcasting to Mixer from October 29, although he says he will still appear as a guest on streams broadcast on other platforms.
