Superstar streamer Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek has announced his move from Twitch to Mixer and will be broadcasting exclusively on Microsoft’s streaming platform.

Shroud shocked the online gaming world on October 24 by announcing that he had left Twitch and moved over to Mixer on an exclusive basis.

The announcement came via a video, captioned “Same shroud, new home,” which showed him gaming at his streaming setup with the Mixer logo emblazoned across all of his monitors.

Not only does Shroud’s page already have a subscribe button, but fans can now claim a subscription for free thanks to a limited time offer, which should last through shroud’s first month on the platform.

As for when he will be going live for the first time, the channel currently features a countdown that indicates the start time to be at 5 PM PST / 8 PM EST.

This is likely for the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which will be releasing about an hour after he goes live, so fans can expect a heavy dosage of the new CoD game in his first stream on Mixer.

With this announcement, shroud has become the second prominent streamer to make the move to Mixer from Twitch, following Ninja’s similarly groundbreaking transition in early August.

Almost instantly after his move, before he had even gone live for the first time, he was setting records left and right for things like most followers, most subscribers, and so forth.

While only time will tell whether shroud will be able to beat those numbers, there is no doubt that he will at least challenge Ninja for the top spot on the platform, and the two will be miles above everyone else.

Mixer - TwitterMixer have welcomed shroud to their platform with open arms.

With his departure, shroud leaves a massive legacy at Twitch, having established himself as one of the biggest and most popular streamers on the platform.

His seven-plus million follower total was good for third overall, behind Ninja and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and he was consistently either at or near the top of the list when it came to channels that had the most subscribers. 

As expected, Twitch have already stripped him of his partner status and subscribe button, although they’re left his channel alone for the most part otherwise.

They seemed to have learned their lesson from the controversial way they handled Ninja’s departure, when they drew heavy backlash for briefly removing his page completely and using it to promote other streamers.

Sykkuno reveals new plans after leaving OfflineTV house

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.
