Dr Disrespect has hit out at the multi billion dollar game developer industry, claiming that there are no “quality” shooter titles on offer. Could the next Call of Duty game be the answer to his problems?
The popular Twitch streamer, who has over 3.4 million followers on the platform at the time of writing, has voiced his frustrations about the lack of game options for him to stream.
The Doc hinted at a streaming hiatus during his April 25 stream and went one step further by asking fellow “passionate gamers” about the issue on Twitter, clearly frustrated by the current situation.
“It's a 150 billion dollar industry. Where are the quality competitive shooter games?” Dr Disrespect tweeted on April 25. “I'm bleeding black blood and my sanity is nuts right now.”
While the Two-Time’s hint at a break from streaming might be a shock for some of his fans, he clearly doesn’t think that he’s alone in thinking that the shooter game scene isn’t as impressive as it could be.

Shortly after the Doc made his plea for a new title, he got a response from Valve. The developer's response seemingly hinted at the fact that he should try out Counter-Strike: Global Offensive again, as he has in the past.
“I know you passionate gamers have to be thinking the same thing. I can't be the only one,” the streamer also tweeted, reaching out to members of the gaming community.
OpTic Gaming's Davis 'Hitch' Edwards responded, too, suggesting that all of Dr Disrespect’s problems may soon disappear if rumors of Infinity Ward continuing the Modern Warfare series with their 2019 Call of Duty title are to be believed.
"Doc, I’m telling you if it’s MW4… We are gonna have to do some huge things,” he responded.

The rumors have started to look a little more concrete of late, too, as former Infinity Ward Creative Strategist and Community Manager Robert 'fourzerotwo' Bowling hinted that the next game would indeed be "modern warfare."
Whether or not that will be enough to encourage Dr Disrespect to stick around on Twitch and continue to stream for all members of the Champions Club remains to be seen, but he’s not happy. That, we know.
