YouTube Gaming has its biggest year, ever, in 2020 with 100B watch time hours and 40M+ active gaming channels. Here, we break down the moments that defined gaming this year.

In fact, there has never been a better time to be a YouTube Gaming creator:

  • More than 80,000 YouTube Gaming creators hit 100,000 subscribers

  • Over 1,000 gaming creators hit 5 million subscribers

  • Over 350 gaming creators reached a whopping 10 million subscribers! 

The world has faced its share of challenges in 2020. Despite the ups and down, many have turned to gaming on YouTube as a way to find connection, entertainment, and to share moments with friends and loved ones during these trying times. Through it all, they have connected even more deeply with gaming creators — some even had their biggest year ever on YouTube in 2020.

The gaming community has always been willing to lend a helping hand when needed. This year, many of YouTube’s gaming creators and partnership tournaments raised awareness and money for several causes, including:

  • Jacksepticeye raising over $660,000 in 12 hours for Covid-19 relief efforts, while CouRage raised over $500,000 during a 12-hour charity stream for the CDC Foundation. 

  • And just last week, The Game Theorists’ MatPat and Stephanie Patrick hosted a 10-hour charity live stream event

    to benefit St. Jude’s. They tripled their goal and raised $3 million with the help of other large creators and gamers like Markiplier, The Game Grumps, Mr. Beast and more.

“Overcoming adversity” would surely be the theme for this year despite the difficulties and challenges. Hence, for the full story and breakdown by Ryan Wyatt -Head of Global Gaming.. click the youtube icon below
