Seagull reveals plans to return to streaming after hiatus

Olivia Richman • June 6, 16:05

Overwatch veteran Brandon “Seagull” Larned announced a return to Twitch earlier this week. 

After two years of content creation, Seagull stepped back from streaming in January citing depression and burnout for his decision to take an indefinite break. At the time, Seagull asked his fans not to forget about him.

About five months later, Seagull has finally decided to return. Seagull stated in a tweet that it has “been quite a while” but his “online life” will resume next week. 

The Overwatch community was beyond excited for Seagull’s return. Fellow streamers and pro players welcomed Seagull back to the scene. Others told him they were glad he was feeling better. 

Seagull previously played for the Dallas Fuel in the Overwatch League. Despite his popularity, Seagull decided to leave the pro scene due to “strict contracts” that wouldn’t allow players to freely stream. During his career, Seagull had also expressed concern with his mental well-being. 

“That whole time though, I had to sacrifice a lot of things. Like a lot of my personal life, a lot of my mental and physical health,” Seagull said during a stream. “I had a lot of problems playing, but it was all worth it because I got to compete.”

After leaving the Overwatch League, Seagull started streaming Overwatch full time. Before announcing his hiatus, Seagull had not been seen on Twitch for 10 days. 

Seagull currently has over 1 million followers on Twitch. The Twitch partner was streaming a variety of games before he left the streaming platform, including a lot of Apex Legends. Fans are no doubt waiting to see what Seagull will play when he returns on June 10.
