World of Warcraft is set to stream through any Twitch game this year after its launch on Monday for the most-watched week. The 32.7 million hours of the title watched between Monday and Friday evening are second only to the 34 million hours observed last week by the International.
Before August, only EA’s royale battle game Apex Legends during the short term Twitch’s most popular game was able to produce more than 30 M hours played in one week, right after its first launch.
The launch of WoW Classic has kept various kinds of calls to the audience. Not only have countless professional streamers switch to the game, but also WoW-endemic characters, like Zack “Asmongold” and Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris, benefit from the title of the match.
