Death Stranding leads Twitch popularity charts in its debut
Apparently the great expectation for the game of Kojima was reflected in the creators and consumers of streaming video content on Twitch, since, at the time of writing the note, Death Stranding almost reached 300,000 simultaneous viewers, which earned him the highest position in terms of popularity, according to Twitch information. To put it in context, the second most viewed section at that time was Conversations, but the game closest to Death Stranding was the forever popular League of Legends, which had approximately one third of the audience (100,500 spectators) of the premiered title.
Of course there have been more popular cases in recent times, such as World of Warcraft Classic, which won just over 1 million simultaneous viewers at its premiere. However, these levels of Death Stranding are still surprising, taking into account that it is a new IP that is only available on PlayStation 4 and also has no direct interaction with more players online.
