All signs are pointing to Dr Disrespect making a glorious return to the world of pro video games and streaming after the popular personality fired back up his social media channels with new content and activated a livestream on his YouTube channel and has amassed more than 340,000 concurrent viewers. The mayhem kicked off Thursday afternoon when the ousted Twitch streamer posted a mysterious music video to his social media accounts with the caption “Red Skies.”
Set against a stormy city bathed in the glow of Disrespect’s trademark red, the gaming personality is silhouetted against the skyline as he belts out an 80’s style ballad, apparently titled “Alley Ways.”
Showing off his full range of bravado and showmanship, Dr Disrespect got his fans going wild as they began speculating what his return to pro graming would entail. Dr Disrespect also began playing faux newscasts that teased an imminent return to streaming … which is thought to begin as early as today.
At the same time his music dropped, the Doc also added a $4.99/Join button to his YouTube channel where it is speculated that he will begin streaming video games again as a content creator.
While all signs point to a major return for Dr Disrespect, it’s still unclear if he’s hatched a new contract with a gaming company or will just be going at it solo as a content creator. Within 1-hour of going live on his YouTube channel, the Doc amassed an audience of over 340,000 active viewers, which is obviously impressive.
In response to the rumors, gaming insider Rod Breslau reported, “sources at Facebook Gaming and YouTube tell me DrDisrespect has not and will not be offered a partnership with either company at this time, but is free to go live just as any other creator would.”
