Following Twitch.tv's acquisition by Amazon, the brand has continued to grow at an incredible rate. Improvements to its video player and new functionality for streamers, February 2017 saw millions more viewers than during the same period last year. But what games got the most attention?
To answer that question, Newzoo has published a top 20 watched games on Twitch for February 2017. The results are important, showcasing regular leaders including League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Hearthstone holding the attention of the eSports crowd, but with some new trending games making an appearance, too. New entries include For Honor, Conan Exiles, and Nioh.
For Honor has most recently seen a dramatic fall from its previously high ranking following several streamers becoming frustrated with its common connection issues. In its place, Horizon: Zero Dawn appears to be making a run for a top 15 spot.
As part of Amazon's Twitch acquisition, it offers one free channel subscription in addition to ad-free viewing with Amazon Prime.
