Twitch's Viewership Record Shattered By The Grefg

It's not even close either--no one has managed to achieve numbers like this for a gaming stream on Twitch before.


Spanish streamer and EU Heretics team owner David "TheGrefg" Martinez has beaten the record for most concurrent viewers for any gaming-related stream on Twitch. The content creator's stream revealing he's a new skin in Fortnite managed to reach 2.5 million viewers, which is far above the previous record holders.

For context of how big this is, the runner-ups to this record include channels like Twitch eLeague and YouTuber Rubiu5. The former has managed to reach 1.1 million viewers and the latter surpassed 1.06 million--both of which are much lower than 2.5 million, so Martinez has utterly smashed the record by a significant margin.

Though not as big, other runner-ups include streamer Ninja, who also has a Fortnite skin styled after him, and has had as many as 667,000 concurrent viewers and U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who had over 400,000 concurrent viewers when she streamed Among Us.

Though the skin isn't live in the game yet, Martinez's Fortnite skin will likely cost somewhere around 2,000 V-bucks (about $16 USD) provided it follows the same pricing model as the other "icon skins" that have been added to the game, such as the aforementioned Ninja skin and those styled after Loserfruit and Lachlan. Martinez will be the eighth icon skin added to Fortnite.
