Neymar Jr. leaves Twitch and joins Facebook Gaming | Digital Trends Spanish

Facebook Gaming continues to expand its networks and add big names to take on YouTube and Twitch. The most recent signing is not a professional streamer or anything like that, but a high-caliber footballer like Brazil’s Neymar Jr.

Neymar Jr. is no stranger to the trend of broadcasting over the internet, but so far he was doing it all through his Twitch channel. That no longer goes; According to the Facebook announcement, the PSG player and the Brazilian team will stream exclusively on Facebook Gaming, beginning December 17 at 11 a.m. PT.

Galera, or pai tá on officially not @FacebookGaming ! 😎🔥
Cola with me to have fun e ja curte a minha Facebook page.

A first gameplay já é amanhã, 4pm Brasília time / 8pm non Paris time.
Bora play!

By adding Neymar Jr, it’s not like Facebook is hiring a rising star or anything like that. Quite the contrary, in fact: the footballer’s Facebook and Instagram accounts already have more than 254 million followers. In the company they have it more than clear, especially because today footballers not only leave an impact on the playing field, but also on their social networks and in the virtual world.

Now, what videogames does Neymar enjoy? It is impossible to rule out titles like FIFA 22 o eFootball 2022, because he himself is part of both titles and it would be at least curious to see him controlling himself, as Sergio Kun Agüero himself once did – and with great success. And that without considering that even now appeared before in Fortnite.

However, Neymar Jr.’s interests revolve around another genre such as shooting and in fact, he has already played Call of duty on Twitch before.

The arrival of Neymar to Facebook Gaming from Twitch emulates, to a certain extent, what happens in the soccer market worldwide: platforms raise the stars of other platforms for large sums of money. Twitch has recently lost other big names and it remains to be seen if this hurts it (or not) in the long run.
