GTA 5 is replacing Just Chatting as Twitch’s most popular category

Just Chatting is usually the king of Twitch, however, as the calendar has turned from April to May, it’s been overtaken by Grand Theft Auto 5 as GTA RP continues to be huge.

Dexerto says “There have been a few iterations of GTA RP over the last few years, and each time a new update releases, the multiplayer mod becomes pretty popular on Twitch. However, with the release of NoPixel’s 3.0 update, the game has skyrocketed in popularity. Streamers like xQc, Summit1g, HasanAbi, Sykkuno, and even Pokimane have gotten involved, and more content creators are lining up to play. What’s surprising this time around, though, is just how big it’s become on Twitch. GTA RP usually lands GTA V in the top five most-watched games for a few weeks, but it is continuing to go strong.”

GTA RP dethrones Just Chatting on Twitch

The interest in GTA RP has gotten so strong that, in the first week of May, it’s overthrown Just Chatting for the most-watched category on Twitch.


Just Chatting, as any regular Twitch user knows, is pretty much the most watched category and will sit on top for multiple days, unless there’s a huge esports event or a new game being released.

“However, in the first week of May, according to stats from SullyGnome, it’s been dethroned by GTA RP. The GTA section has averaged just over 5,000 more viewers for the first week of May, but the peak viewership is way higher and tops at almost 300,000 more viewers.”

Dexerto says “xQc has always been a lone wolf in many ways. Generally, he likes to stream on his own rather than collaborating with other streamers. And when he does collaborate with them, it leads to drama more often than not. For example, he clashed with streamers like Pokelawls and Myth on the OfflineTV Rust server before quitting. Then, when he moved onto GTA RP, he got banned multiple times following clashes with other streamers like MOONMOON before moving on. Heck, he even rage-quit from a Monopoly game. But interestingly enough, butting heads with other streamers isn’t the reason why he’s now “done” with collaborations. It turns out that something else bothers him much
