GameSquare’s Stream Hatchet Publishes 2024 First Quarter Report

Live-streaming viewership is up 10% from Q1 2023 to 8.2 billion hours watched

FRISCO, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 2, 2024 / Stream Hatchet, a streaming analytics and business intelligence platform and wholly-owned subsidiary of GameSquare Holdings (NASDAQ:GAME), ("GameSquare", or the "Company"), has published its 2024 first quarter Live-Streaming Trends Report.

"The strong growth in Live-Streaming that occurred during the 2024 first quarter, compared to the prior year period is encouraging, especially as trends normalized after the pandemic. Most notably, the hours of Live-Streaming watched since the 2019 first quarter is up 128%, reflecting the historic transformation that has occurred in the ways media and content is consumed," said Justin Kenna, CEO of GameSquare.

Key takeaways from the 2023 Yearly Trends Report include:

  • Live-streaming viewership is up 10% from Q1 2023 to 8.2 billion hours watched, indicating a resurgence in the industry since the post-pandemic dip.
  • 7 of the top 10 games grew in hours watched this quarter with an average growth of 31%
  • While many of the smaller platforms in the market are losing viewership, big players like Twitch, and YouTube Gaming continue to grow. Steam was a breakout star in Q1, doubling its hours watched. New South Korean platform, Chzzk, helped AfreecaTV to overtake Twitch's influence in the country.
  • Palword was the top Q1 game launch by a mile - with 95 million hours watched in its first 30 days, it outperformed mega-popular Hohwarts Legacy (Q1 2023's big star) by 25 million hours watched.
