Facebook Gaming has signed Richard “KingRichard” Nelson to an exclusive streaming deal. The seven-time Apex Legends tournament winner will start streaming via the Facebook Gaming platform. The deal was facilitated by Loaded and financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.
In an exclusive article in Tubefilter, it was announced that Facebook Gaming had signed King Richard. He is now an exclusive partner of the Facebook streaming platform and will continue for his audience there.
“We’re focused on building positive, welcoming communities around gaming, and KingRichard’s unbridled positivity is a perfect fit for the platform. While all competitive livestreamers teach by example, KingRichard is one who will really take the time to teach his fans how to level up their in-game skills,” Facebook’s global director of games partnerships Leo Olebe said in a statement.
Nelson did give a quick statement to Tubefilter, though. He talked a little about the transition to Facebook Gaming and why he chose it. In the article, he said:
“Facebook is the largest social media platform in the world, so it was easy for me to jump at this opportunity to significantly grow my brand through gaming and original content. There’s also a lot of flexibility with how I’m able to distribute my content. I’m able to livestream on both Facebook Gaming and Instagram Live, which is huge for me as a father. Most parents out there know that children can be unpredictable, so having the ability to livestream in different ways will help me be there for them when I’m needed and still grow my career in meaningful ways.”
Nelson will create original content and interact with fans during his streams on both Facebook and Instagram.
