Several video producers and streamers seized this chance to exhibit the future game and its mechanics and this might have resulted in the boost in numbers on the purple platform.

Within two days of the closed beta’s launch, XDefiant surged to the top of the Twitch directory. The first-person shooter continues to draw around 50,000 viewers, surpassing the combined popularity of Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2.
The statistics were seen on Twitch’s browsing page, which lists several gaming categories along with the total number of viewers. Given that Activision just released its third seasonal update for its most current series, this development is rather alarming.
Looking at the numbers of Twitch it was both alarming and exciting, as one fan wrote “This is just brutal. XDefiant Closed Beta has more viewers than Warzone and MW2 combined.” This might be just the beginning of a new era of a new FPS title that fans seem to enjoy.
