Jaryd 'summit1g' Lazar has revealed that one of the biggest moments of his life is just around the corner, with some fans suspecting that he could be making the switch from Twitch to Mixer. 

The popular variety streamer has been responsible for some of the biggest trends in the online gaming community during the last 12 months, including a surge in players hopping over to Sea of Thieves, GTA RP, and more recently Escape from Tarkov after he started streaming it on his channel.

During a broadcast on January 31, though, the former CSGO player might not have revealed what seems to be a bombshell announcement just yet, but has teased that something big is about to happen soon.

Summit1g surpassed four million Twitch followers in November 2019, after a successful stint on GTA RP.


Starting off his stream, much like he always does, summit1g decided to take a few questions from donators, and things got really interesting when he was asked about potentially growing his YouTube content in the future.

While he admitted that he's put his work on the platform on the back burner in recent times, he has contacted his agent about improving that side of things, and even dropped a hint about a big change in his life coming up.

"Right now, probably one of the biggest moments of my life is happening somewhat soon so, little nervous about everything," he said. "Good times to be had boys, don't worry, just trust me like you always have and everything is going to be alright."


Just after that, as the clip above shows, he says something that many fans will probably understand – that Twitch has changed for him over time. "It's just scary stuff, you know. Twitch turned into a scary world. It was my place of like (makes hand gesture), and it still is for me, but it's also a place of stress now."

Whereas in the past it was something to relieve stress for him, since moving to full-time streaming and making "life-changing" decisions on a near day-to-day basis, things look to have changed.

It's unknown if the streamer has signed a new deal with Twitch to keep him streaming on the platform, although when fans popped the question on everybody's minds – i.e. whether or not he's following shroud and Ninja by heading to Mixer – he just swerved the question entirely.


As is usually the case when high-profile streamers like summit tease big news, the rumor mill begins to turn fairly quickly in the Twitch chat, and that's exactly what happened here too – with some fans asking if his girlfriend is pregnant, or if he's getting married soon.

What we do know, though, is that people have to be patient. Whatever he's got up his sleeve appears to be pretty exciting and it probably won't be long before he makes the official announcement, either.
