Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is having a hell of a 2020 and has announce his decision to join the Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Don’t forget, Ninja recently signed a multiyear deal to return to Twitch, and his loyal fanbase.
Ninja started out playing competitive esports and streaming Fortnite, remember Ninja was the first streamer to grace the cover of ESPN The Magazine. Collaborating on a new shoe with Adidas, publishing a graphic novel, popping up on The Masked Singer, Ninja has been taking no prisoners.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ninja would be getting into producing, as well as acting and singing. Ninja assured his fans that he will remain loyal to his 16 million Twitch followers, and an estimated 50 million followers worldwide, as he continues gaming and streaming. He can leverage his huge fan base to help him with his plans to expand the creative passions in the future.
Ninja broke onto the scene with Halo 3 all the way back in 2009, when he played with Cloud9, Renegades, Team Liquid, and Luminosity Gaming. Then, he started streaming with H1Z1 and Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds. Ninja then stormed into Fortnite where he became a superstar. Not long after reaching superstar status, he dropped Twitch for Mixer; however, jumped back when the Microsoft-led project folded this past summer.
Ninja has confirmed that his wife, Jessica Blevins, will continue to manager his career, and his millions of fans worldwide will be holding their collective breath as they await Ninjas next moves.
