Streaming star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek announced that he’s moving back to Twitch after Microsoft shut down Mixer to merge with Facebook Gaming, all while unveiling his new branding and logo.

On June 22, Microsoft made the unexpected announcement that they are shutting down Mixer. The major tech company had previously tried to strengthen its streaming service by signing major exclusivity deals with Twitch stars such as Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and shroud in 2019.

Following the decision, shroud revealed that he’s planning to stream on Twitch once again. The personality is going to be welcomed by the huge following he’s made in the first-person shooter genre, with his skills earning him the longtime nickname, “human aimbot.”

Shortly after Microsoft made the announcement that they are merging with Facebook Gaming for streaming, reports revealed that the company had bought out shroud’s contract, making him a free agent.

The popular FPS player followed that up with a series of teasers before finally dropping the huge news on August 11 that’s he’s returning to Twitch, the platform he called home for years before his surprise move to Mixer in 2020.

 

The video not only reveals the huge news but also unveils shroud’s new logo and branding, which features his name next to a reticle with an arrow pointing at it.

Shroud debuted a new logo along with his Twitch announcement.

When is Shroud streaming on Twitch?

Shortly after the announcement, shroud also revealed that he’ll be kicking off his first Twitch stream back on Wednesday, August 12 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET.

What’s more, the former CSGO pro is already partnered again on Twitch, meaning he’ll have his subscriber button ready to go for the hundreds of thousands of viewers that are expected to show up in his first few return broadcasts.

His Twitch partnership was revoked, of course, following the move to Mixer, but now it’s been reinstated, which means he won’t be able to stream anywhere else, unlike fellow star Ninja, who also was on Mixer and is now allowed to broadcast on whatever platform he chooses, without exclusivity.

Shroud’s decision to return to Twitch was probably an easy one, as at the time of writing his channel has over 7.1 million followers and will be one of the platform’s faces again upon his return. Viewers will no doubt be eager to watch the star show his mindblowing FPS skill and prove, again, that he’s the Human Aimbot.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
