Valkyrae reveals new YouTube Gaming deal after streaming break
100 Thieves co-owner Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter has revealed that she’s re-signed a contract with YouTube after taking a break from live streaming.
Valkyrae announced that she was joining fellow 100 Thieves co-owner Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop on YouTube Gaming in early 2020, bringing her content exclusively to the Google-owned website.
Hofstetter announced on January 14 of this year that she was taking a break from streaming after announcing that her YouTube contract had expired.
She then explained that the video she was going to use to announce her next contract hadn’t been filmed yet, leaving fans wondering if she would be moving back to Twitch.
On January 31, Rae has finally released her video on Twitter, revealing that she has re-signed with YouTube Gaming.

Rae replies: “It’s okay, I’m just staying on YouTube.”
Valkyrae has amassed over 3.6 million subscribers throughout her three YouTube channels.

Many fans of the creator made comments about the jab she made towards Facebook Gaming in the video. When presented with a blue mug, she smashed it onto the ground before saying, “No.”
This may not be the only YouTube Gaming news we hear about this year, as Valkyrae has teased that there are even more Twitch creators being signed to the platform.
