Superstar Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has suffered a setback that may cause him to miss some time from dominating lobbies in Apex Legends

*Update: March 13*

Shroud has had the first of his surgeries and appears to be tired, but otherwise in good spirits. He’s been left a get well soon package by his friends, although did admit that he is “missing the stream broys already.”

Hours after the above update, shroud tweeted again to let fans know that he’s still going to be in the hospital for “another 24 hours” before having a second surgery at the start of next week. 

Original article:

Just days after he hit an incredible milestone on Twitch, shroud revealed that he had sustained an injury after being involved in an accident while riding his scooter.

“No stream today boys,” he tweeted on March 11. “Blame the scooter.”

For those who were concerned, fellow ex-pro CS:GO player Justin ‘Jus9n’ Ortiz announced that shroud was okay but had to be taken to the emergency room, although shroud did reveal some more bad news a few hours later.

“Bros, getting surgery on my elbow today,” he tweeted. “Might be out of commission for a bit.”

The tweet does not bode well for shroud’s fans, many of whom probably will fear that the popular streamer will be missing considerable time away from streaming.

However, although he wasn’t specific, shroud put out another tweet that hinted at him possibly not missing much time at all.

“It’s my left arm; don’t worry, the aim is still there,” he said. ” Movement might be a little slow as I recover.”

ShroudShroud has been dominating Apex Legends since its release, but his elbow surgery may give others a chance for once.

Shroud’s housemate and fellow streamer, Justin ‘Just9n’ Ortiz, has since provided more details about the accident, and explains that it was potentially life-threatening.

Once the initial shock of the announcement of his injury and subsequent surgery wore off, fans quickly began poking fun at the former CS:GO star for getting injured while riding a scooter.

Fellow popular streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop was quick with a comedic response, as usual: “I donate you my elbow. Hope it all goes well pal.”

How much time shroud will end up missing from streaming, only time will tell. 

However, once he returns, there is no doubt that he’ll likely go back to dominating helpless players Apex Legends, as not even recovering from surgery may be enough to stop the human aimbot that is shroud.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.
