According to a new report by StreamElements’ analytical website Rainmaker.gg, March 2021 was a record-breaking month for Twitch, as the premier streaming website recorded an incredible 2.06 billion watched hours. This number represents a year-on-year growth of over 100%, suggesting that streamers – or specifically watching streaming – has never been more popular.
For the most part, video games have taken the lead in regards to viewer interest, with Rockstar’s crime sim Grand Theft Auto V pulling in around 181 million hours, celebrating its debut at the top of the streaming charts, despite the title’s advancing age. This was followed by Riot Games’ League of Legends at 143 million hours, and Epic Games’ juggernaut Fortnite at 107 million hours.
