The reason behind Sykkuno’s mysterious behavior has been revealed. Fans have been wondering why Sykkuno has been so outwardly emotional, and it appears to be due to a switch from Twitch to YouTube.
Sykkuno has been streaming on Twitch for a while, usually found collaborating with Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang and Imane “Pokimane” Anys. During a recent stream, Sykkuno thanked all of his friends for making his time streaming more enjoyable, even shedding a tear during his talk.
Fans started to wonder what had Sykkuno so upset. Was he retiring? Moving away from Los Angeles? Was he sick? It turns out that Sykkuno was planning a move to YouTube.
Sykkuno announces move to YouTube in dramatic video
Sykkuno shared a video on May 2 that announced his move to YouTube. In the video, he explained that he started gaming in his parent’s shed, just wanting to play some games. He soon started streaming, something he didn’t originally plan to do.
Sykkuno started off playing Minecraft and League of Legends, but has since moved to more casual titles like GTA and Among Us. Through it all, he’s made some “really good friends” and gained a community.
In the video, Valkyrae asks Sykkuno if he’s ready to go. Sykkuno reacts by saying he’s going to do what he’s “always done,” but in a “new place.”
Fans congratulated Sykkuno for the announcement, seemingly excited to have him on YouTube with Valkyrae. He hasn’t announced any contract details just yet, but YouTube most likely offered him more money than Twitch. He recently explained that he didn’t have any exclusivity with Twitch.
Sykkuno joined YouTube in 2011 but was primarily streaming on Twitch while posting recorded videos on YouTube. Now Sykkuno will be streaming live on YouTube starting May 3.
