Popular Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect believes developers of upcoming battle royale game’s must follow Fortnite‘s unique lead – by adopting a third-person shooting model, rather than the more common first person perspective.

The Doc explained that the battle royale market was becoming increasingly saturated, with Battlefield V set to release their take on the genre – Firestorm – on March 25.

With Fortnite and Apex Legends still dominating the industry, he believes that developers should take inspiration from Epic Games, who are one of the few developers to use a third-person mechanic exclusively in their game.

EPIC GAMESFortnite is one of the few battle royale games to use the third person mechanic.

After watching some gameplay of Battlefield V, and giving his thoughts and predictions for the game’s success, the Doc began to speculate on how the genre can truly evolve.

“The industry is flooded with first-person shooter games just trying to figure out what the perfect formula is to extend their shelf life,” he explained while playing PUBG. “Fortnite is the only one that is third person and is absolutely destroying the industry.

“The next studio that produces a third person Triple A military style shooter, that’s battle royale and can be competitive multiplayer as well, It’s going to be the next big thing”

Dr Disrespect went on to give the example of newly-released The Division 2, as a game that excels in a third-person perspective.

“I think The Division 2, if designed right, could be a pretty fun multiplayer/battle royale experience. I think they need to add more mechanics and verticality to their gameplay but I like the look and feel of it.”

PUBG of course does offer a third person perspective, but it also has first person too, splitting the player base. There are also complaints about PUBG’s movement mechanics and ‘clunky’ controls when in third person.

It remains to be seen whether Battlefield will hit the nail on the head with their new mode with streamers such as shroud already voicing their concerns after watching the early game footage.

Time will tell whether Battlefield can prove their early critics wrong and add another worthy competitor to the battle royale market.

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
