We knew that Critical Role, a group of amazing voice actors running an epic Dungeons & Dragons campaign, was successful. But, we didn’t expect it to be THIS successful.
With a recent Twitch hack, first reported by Video Games Chronicle, in which hackers obtained info such as:
- The company’s source code
- Info on all properties Twitch owns
- A possible Steam competitor, Vapour, from Amazon Game Studios
- Streamer payouts since 2019
The hack has since been confirmed by Twitch themselves –
Mind you, this is but only Twitch advertising payouts only and does not include other streams of income for the channel.
Here’s a list of the top streamers with data obtained from the hack (in USD), cumulative payouts since August 2019 –
- Critical Role – $9.6 million
