The Redmond giant announced that they're shutting down its Mixer game streaming platform, and will merge existing Mixer users to Facebook Gaming.

Per Microsoft:

"It became clear that the time needed to grow our own live-streaming community to scale was out of measure with the vision and experiences that Microsoft and Xbox want to deliver for gamers now, so we've decided to close the operations side of Mixer and help the community transition to a new platform. To better serve our community's needs, we're teaming up with Facebook to enable the Mixer community to transition to Facebook Gaming."

Mixer has struggled gaining users even as Microsoft made significant investments in expanding the platform. They even made a splash last year by signing Fortnite streamer Tyler Blevins to an exclusive multi-year streaming deal.

Chime in.
