Summit1G, Dakotaz And JoshOG Have Signed New Contracts With Twitch

In another swathe of streamer signings for video giant Twitch, three of the platform’s most popular variety streamers have entered into multi-year exclusive deals involving content and partnership support. Summit1G, Dakotaz, and JoshOG follow the likes of DrLupo, honored at last year’s Game Awards, in committing to using Twitch as their only streaming platform for the duration of their deals.

Summit1G, whose real name is Jaryd Lazar, has been streaming with Twitch since 2013 according to his channel, while Brett “Dakotaz” Hoffman has been broadcasting Fortnite gameplay to an audience of 4.3 million followers.

Both Hoffman and Lazar have enjoyed fame on Twitch while streaming multiplayer games, and are full-time streamers according to the Washington Post.

With no shortage of competitors to Twitch (which is owned by Amazon) popping up, including Mixer and Facebook Gaming (to name a few), the bidding war for online talent has been fierce.

While popular streamer, Richard “Ninja” Blevins was reportedly wooed by Mixer to the tune of over $20 million for his own exclusivity contract with the platform, the figures behind Summit1G, Dakotaz and JoshOG’s contracts have not been disclosed by the parties involved.

In the meantime, Twitch isn’t just offering a place for you to watch your favorite streamers play games. From today, Twitch Prime subscribers can claim seven free SNK games including legacy titles like The King of Fighters 2000, Fatal Fury Special, and more. This giveaway is in celebration of NEOGEO arcade’s 30th anniversary, and there will be a number of SNK games available via Twitch Prime for free over the course of the summer.
