Spanish Twitch streamer TheGrefg has broken the concurrent viewership record on Twitch with close to 2.5 million concurrent live views.
Fortnite fans were so excited to see Spanish Twitch streamer TheGrefg reveal an Icon Series skin for the game, that they showed up in force on Monday, smashing Twitch’s concurrent viewership record. Almost 2.5 million live viewers tuned in at the same time.
This was quite the occasion, as there are only eight skins in the Icon Series (including TheGrefg’s), and the is honor is reserved only for top creators in Fortnite.
TheGrefg’s stream didn’t just break the record for most concurrent viewers on an individual stream; it also surpassed Fortnite’s record for most viewers across the platform (2.3m views). TheGrefg also broke the all-time views record on Twitch, which was previously held by Eleague TV (1.1m views).
Streamers from outside the US have grown in prominence during the last few years, with international streamers – Spanish ones in particular – have grown in popularity on Twitch, taking up to 40% of the top most-viewed positions in 2020.
