The popular streamer keeps getting notifications and text-to-speech donations from his fans who keep asking him about when he is quitting streaming, or what his future plans are. Recently when someone suggested Summit1G to play new games or even try competing in the new D2 expansion, Summit1G responded saying he wants to beat up someone and got very aggressive. He said he blames the whole incident on LSF but needless to say it is a joke. He made it very clear that things were simply taken out of context by LSF and the community and we know for a fact that he doesn’t actually have ill feelings towards anyone in the community.
The clip that was circulated so much was from the start of his stream on November 18 in which he simply said “I’m out”. But he did proceed to stream Dishonored for about 9 hours. He discussed in detail about the ongoing talks about him just quitting streaming. One of the topics he brought up was how he does not understand that people can just quit out of nowhere in a single day. It is a conscious decision that takes time and planning. The entire incident was nothing but drama created by the Twitch community that loves to takes things out of context. But regardless, it was fun for all of us as a lot of fans were in utter disbelief at a potential departure from Twitch by the veteran FPS gamer. Summit1G was simply joking about the whole thing and all is good and well in Twitchland.

He does not want his fans to worry too much as he will surely let all of us know that is intends to move on to something else in life in the future. He has big ambitions and his desired to invest in a gaming studio and create a game of his own is nothing to scoff at. We would love to try what he has in mind. He has talked about in the in the past but he is not sure if he would ever get a chance to build his own game. He claims that he has burnt a lot of bridges in the past with game devs and a game of his own might be out of the question. Something he has considered seriously is consulting but not anytime soon. He will continue streaming his favorite games and hopefully find something great to pursue in the future. Unlike other streamers whose careers are tied to their pro gaming skillsets, Summit1G is not only a fantastic streamer but also a great personality in the community and his career isn’t going to die out anytime soon.
