For April’s deep dive into Game Streaming Tracker, Newzoo examined console esports, including its viewership hours, market share, and top tournaments and titles.
The latest report reveals that more than 14.1 million hours of major console esports events have been viewed on Twitch since the year began, growing to 20 million overall when you include YouTube.
The Twitch figure is 95.5 per cent higher than the same period (January to April) in 2017.
Four tournaments accounted for around half the total viewership hours. Of these, Call of Duty was the most popular, accounting for 5.8 million hours, following by FIFA 18 at 3.9 million.
