When summit1g said Twitch has become a rather scary world, fans were quick to take on the possible hint of the streamer jumping ships to other platforms.
The streamer has also teased of a major announcement soon.
Jaryd “summit1g” Lazar is behind some of the biggest trends in the online gaming community for the past year.
Thanks to him, there’s been a surge in player base on titular games like GTA RP, Sea of Thieves, and Escape from Tarkov. All after he began to stream the games on his channel!
But during a recent broadcast last January 31, the ex-CS:Go player revealed he has a major announcement coming up in the future. He didn’t say when exactly, but it’s to be expected “soon.”
When it comes to streamers saying they have a special announcement in store – fans always jump into the idea of their favorite stars jumping to another platform.
And in summit1g’s case, this may turn out to be correct.
He began his stream answering a few questions from fans. The discussion got interesting when he answered about potentially growing his Youtube content sometime soon.
He admitted to have shoved his Youtube work on the back of his top priority list. But recently, he contacted his agent as he wanted to improve his Youtube visibility.
This was also when the star dropped a hint regarding an upcoming major change in his life!
“Right now, probably one of the biggest moments of my life is happening somewhat soon so, little nervous about everything…”
“Good times to be had boys, don’t worry, just trust me like you always have and everything is going to be alright.”
Shortly after, he also admitted how Twitch changed over time. It was something he claims he “personally” felt, but many fans can also agree on his sentiments.
“It’s just scary stuff, you know. Twitch turned into a scary world. It was my place of like [joy]… and it still is for me, but it’s also a place of stress now.”
Although the platform was once a place where he can relieve stress, things might have changed when he began to become a full-time streamer.
It’s yet confirmed if summit1g signed on a new deal to stream exclusively on the platform, though.
And when fans asked about whether he’ll join the likes of ex-Twitch stars shroud and Ninja on Mixer, he was rather tight-lipped on the matter.
Last year, Twitch saw some of the biggest names in the platform leave for other platforms like Mixer, Youtube Gaming, and Facebook Gaming.
Summit1g may just add to the growing list, or not. Other fans speculate how his “announcement” may be regarding his girlfriend getting pregnant, or that he may be getting married soon.
Fans may have to wait a while for summit1g’s official announcement soon! What do you think it could be? Let us know in the comments below.
