Earlier this year popular Twitch star Tyler Blevins signed a deal with Microsoft to move from Twitch to Microsoft’s own streaming platform Mixer. Within days Ninja managed to gain over 1 million followers on Mixer and pushed Mixer’s Android app to the top on Google Play Store.
Now, Microsoft has managed to snatch another Twitch star. Popular CS: GO player Michael Grzesiek, aka Shroud has announced his move from Twitch to Mixer. Shroud announced the move with a high budget video which ended with him streaming games on Mixer.

The move was announced earlier today and Shroud has already posted a link to his first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare stream. To celebrate the move, Microsoft is also offering a free subscription for a limited time on Mixer. If you’re someone who has been following him then you can head to Mixer to subscribe.
