Blevin’s reasons for leaving Twitch for Mixer weren’t detailed, but it’s believed that Mixer owner Microsoft paid a butt-tonne of money as part of the deal. Of late, Microsoft has been spending up, acquiring development studios like Obsidian, Double Fine, Compulsion and Ninja Theory alongside the creation of new studios like The Coalition and The Initiative. Adding a hugely popular streamer to the mix just makes sense.
