Twitch will no longer offer 70/30 splitting for streamers as of June 2023

Twitch has become a go-to platform over the past few years, exploding into the gaming scene and draining an audience and variety of steamers that would have been hard to imagine a while ago. For these content creators, the question of remuneration is central, but Twitch has just announced a major change to come on this aspect.

No more 70/30 revenue sharing, it will be 50/50 for everyone

For years, the Twitch platform has been based on a 50/50 compensation system for the majority of streamers. Nevertheless, some of them, generally quite well known, were able to sign a more advantageous contract when the platform was less popular than today: the famous 70/30.

Twitch had announced to stop signing new contracts in 70/30 without going back on the contracts signed several years ago. It is now over since all steamers will switch to 50/50 from June 2023 as formalized by Dan Clancy, the boss of Twitch in a note published on the platform’s website.

To make it a smooth ride with Twitch Partners, Twitch will continue to pay major streamers 70/30 for the first $100,000 in revenue. After that, future earnings will be capped at a 50/50 split.

At the same time, Twitch will launch a new policy introducing more advertising breaks during live streams, thus increasing advertising revenue with a 55% share granted to streamers in order to encourage them to stay on the platform. We can nevertheless suspect that this risks having the opposite effect on the hearings.
