100 Thieves content creator Rachel “Valkyrae” Hofsetter has ditched Twitch for an exclusivity deal with YouTube, the streamer announced today.

Valkyrae posted a teaser video yesterday that showed a small girl sitting on the ground and playing on a retro game console while informing fans that she’d make an announcement today.

Valkyrae’s move from Twitch to YouTube was first reported by Rod “Slasher” Breslau. Another 100 Thieves content creator, Jack “CouRage” Dunlop, also signed an exclusivity deal with YouTube on Nov. 4, 2019.

Slasher said that the deal was negotiated by the United Talent Agency, who also work with other big-name streamers like Imane “Pokimane” Anys and Jermey “Disguised Toast” Wang. Disguised Toast left Twitch for Facebook Gaming on Nov. 22, 2019.

Valkyrae made her move to YouTube official by posting a video that explained why she’s excited to take the next step in her career.

Valkyrae will make her debut YouTube stream on Jan. 14 to celebrate her new home for streaming.
