According to esports journalist Richard Lewis, Ninja and Shroud decided to opt-out of the negotiation with Facebook to transfer to Facebook Gaming.

Esports journalist Rod “Slasher” Breslau added that Facebook offered double the amount of their original Mixer contracts. Reportedly Ninja’s original Mixer contract is around $30 million, while Shroud’s contract is around $30 million. Both stars declined the offer Facebook made of double the amount of money.

Ninja’s decision to leave Twitch because of licensing issues and wanting to have more freedom to grow his brand. Now that he’s a free agent Twitch now might rectify the deal and bring back Ninja to their streaming platform. Ninja’s viewership on Mixer has been much lower than on Twitch, so the transition back would help with gaining his viewership back.
