The esports community has been left emotional after Luminosity Gaming put up a heartfelt tweet thanking Felix “xQc” Lengyel for being a part of the organization.
While the tweet didn’t specify what exactly was happening, the context implies that xQc is leaving Luminosity. Luminosity nor xQc has made any further comment on the matter, and xQc is still listed on the org’s creator page.
The former Overwatch League pro has become one of the biggest streamers in the world in the past few years, whether it’s reacting to reality television shows, playing video games, or just airing personal drama. He currently has 11.5 million followers on Twitch, where he still has Luminosity banners on his stream.
Why is xQc leaving Luminosity Gaming?
There hasn’t been any official statement from Luminosity nor xQc explaining why it appears like the streamer is leaving the esports organization.
It’s more than likely that xQc’s contract with Luminosity is up, and one side chose not to renew it. xQc joined Luminosity Gaming back in October of 2020, creating some unique content for the org, like the Rising Star program, which had xQc searching for the next big streamer to join the team.
It’s currently not known why the relationship is ending, but xQc has never spoken badly about the organization. A lot of fans noted last year, however, that xQc didn’t seem to care about the org too much. It was speculated that xQc stayed because Luminosity sponsored his visa.
Who is on Luminosity Gaming?
With xQc leaving, Luminosity Gaming still has a wide assortment of streamers on its creator roster. xQc was the biggest, however, which is why fans are sad to see him go.
Still, Call of Duty: Warzone champion Jordan “HusKerrs” Thomas, YouTuber Jerome “JeromeASF” Aceti, Apex Legends player Shivam “Shiv” Patel, Rising Star winner Bailey “Baileygoat” Kile, and Guinness World Record holder Rocky “RockyNoHands” Stoutenburgh are still rocking the Luminosity Gaming jersey.
