Twitch streamer Dr DisRespect left a cryptic hint about a potential new project involving himself, fellow streamer Michael "shroud" Grzesiek and something to do with a battle royale game.

The Doc, real name Guy Beahm, is best known for streaming battle royale game PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds, while in his signature character and outfit.

He quickly became one of the top streamers on Twitch thanks to his infectious personality and character as 'Dr DisRespect', as well as impressive production value, the likes of which was unprecedented at the time.

He remains an avid PUBG player on stream, something he has in common with shroud, a former professional CS:GO player who now streams full time.

The pair often play together, attracting some 40,000 concurrent viewers between them - and sometime even more, making them some of the most recognizable faces on the platform.

And their popularity has not gone unnoticed by sponsors and video game developers themselves - they both had personalized skins added to PUBG recently.

The marketing power of Twitch streamers is well appreciated by these companies, and judging by this excerpt from a recent Dr DisRespect stream, another potentially huge deal could be on the way.

Given the Doc's character and skit like comedy, it is possible that this is nothing more than a joke played out to his viewers.

However, it does seem likely that both he and shroud would be offered these kinds of deals to be involved in the promotion of new games, and revenue sharing from purchases of in game items.

Dr DisRespect recently partnered with chiliZ, a blockchain based firm who are launching a platform to fund competitive Fortnite teams, so this could be in some way linked to this.

At this point though, the clip from his stream is the only information we have, so there isn't much to speculate on yet.
