Ninja Bio

Richard Tyler Blevins was born in 1991 in Detroit, Michigan. His family moved to the Chicago suburbs when he was one year old, and he enjoyed a comfortable, albeit fairly typical, childhood. The one thing that always stood out? His love for video games.

After leaving high school, Tyler set out to become an eSports professional– a novel idea at the time. He began his gaming career playing the popular Halo series by Microsoft. Throughout his tenure, he signed with a number of different gaming organizations who continued funding Ninja’s dream.

As Halo began to decline, Tyler knew he had to make some changes. He started playing other popular titles, including H1Z1 and PubG. But it wasn’t until Fortnite launched in late 2017 that he really blew up.

 

Following the quick rise of Fortnite, Ninja gained millions of followers in the span of a few months. By mid-2018, Ninja had a massive following in the tens of millions. It wasn’t long until “Ninja” was a household name.

We’re well into 2019 now, and Ninja shows no sign of slowing down. He maintains a large and active following, and continues to make big moves that shake up the industry. Today, you can find him on Mixer, streaming to millions of followers.

What’s next for the gaming icon? Nobody knows for certain. But rumors point to a new era of gaming. One that takes Ninja back to his roots. We’re talking, of course, about the upcoming release of Halo Infinite. Intrigued? Stay tuned.
