NICKMERCS Has Signed With Kick Ahead of Twitch Con
Minutes ago, it was announced on the Kick.com social channels that the iconic and at-times controversial streamer, NICKMERCS, has signed with the platform. It was also revealed by the man himself via a short, 30-second trailer, marking him as the latest in a long line of ‘acquisitions’ by the platform.
It seemed like the string of big-budget signings had died out in recent months, as for the longest time, Kick.com was relying on the ‘$100 million acquisition’ of xQc, one of the most popular streamers in the world. With NICKMERCS joining the platform as a contracted streamer, it seems like the hype train that Kick.com was so dependent on might be gearing up to get moving again.
Right before Twitch Con. How about that?
NICKMERCS Is Now On Kick
For a few weeks, it looked like Dr Disrespect would be the next signing for Kick.com, but following a sudden move by YouTube Gaming to formally ‘recognise’ the confident and cocky creator, fans far and wide recognise that the deal may have fallen through – if it even existed in the first place, of course.
NICKMERCS was most recently in the news because of his somewhat unexpected and highly publicised comment about the treatment of children by pro-LGBT people, which at the time of writing has secured almost 16 million impressions on Twitter.
For a while, NICKMERCS has kept himself to himself, not streaming too much, posting football-related content, and spending time with his family. It seems he’s about to pick content back up in earnest, though. It’s not yet known what the terms of his deal are with Kick.com, but if the precedent is anything to go by, he may have just secured a whopping bag.
