Big-name Twitch streamer Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek signs up as Mixer exclusive

Following Ninja's move earlier this year.

Microsoft has snapped up another big-name Twitch streamer for its Mixer streaming platform, this time in the form of Michael Grzesiek, better known as Shroud.

Grzesiek, a former professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player, has amassed over 7 million followers on Twitch, making him one of the biggest streamers on the platform.

He broke the news of his move to Mixer earlier today, telling fans, "Same Shroud. New home". The announcement was accompanied by a video showing the streamer walking dramatically down what I'd personally call a dangerously ill-lit corridor. Also, there is cat:

Since announcing his defection from Twitch to Microsoft's rival streaming platform, Grzesiek has already welcomed over 70,000 followers (and counting) to his Mixer channel.

Grzesiek's decision to become a Mixer-exclusive streamer marks another major win for Microsoft. In August, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, one of the biggest and best-known Fortnite Twitch streamers in the world, announced he'd also be joining Mixer in an exclusive capacity.

Shroud's inaugural Mixer stream is scheduled to begin at 1am UK time on Friday, 25th October.
