Additionally, daily hours watched hit 56 million during the month of August (via VentureBeat).

“While there is no definitive explanation for August’s dip, there were some contributing factors that include top creators streaming less and legacy games dropping in viewership,” the report detailed.

Baldur’s Gate 3 took the top spot for one of the most-viewed game of the month, joining the likes of Grand Theft Auto and Valorant. Furthermore, both heavyweights League of Legends and Dota 2 saw fewer views during the month.

  • Grand Theft Auto 5 – 103 million hours
  • Valorant – 100 million hours

  • Minecraft – 42 million hours
  • Escape from Tarkov – 40 million hours
  • Fortnite – 40 million hours
