The latest update to Grand Theft Auto made a splash this week as several Fortnite streamers on Twitch switched to GTA.

PUBG still strong on Youtube but GTA makes an impact

Aeod 1407 kept the top spot this week with PUBG while Jordanian streamer NHSN Fox kept second place thanks to his 97 hours of streaming and 45K Total Hours Watched. This is fewer hours streamed but more hours watched than last week. Haman391 made the list again with his 2-hour stream and generating a healthy 21K Total Hours Watched from an ACCV of 9K.
