Microsoft Shutting Down Mixer, Partnering With Facebook Gaming For Streaming

Microsoft has announced that it is shutting down its video game streaming platform, Mixer on July 22. Microsoft will be partnering with Facebook Gaming as a new locale for viewers and streamers. In a statement, head of Xbox Phil Spencer said:
Ultimately, the success of Partners and streamers on Mixer is dependent on our ability to scale the service for them as quickly and broadly as possible. It became clear that the time needed to grow our own livestreaming community to scale was out of measure with the vision and experiences we want to deliver to gamers now, so we’ve decided to close the operations side of Mixer and help the community transition to a new platform.”
