Tfue’s Retirement and Impact on Fortnite
Tfue initially retired from streaming on June 20th, 2023, uploading a retirement video simply titled “Goodbye…” that has now garnered over 4.5 million views. At the time, Tfue’s retirement shocked the gaming community, as he was at the peak of his career as one of the most popular Fortnite streamers in the world.
With his incredible skills and aggressive playstyle, Tfue rose to fame during Fortnite’s early years and was considered one of the best competitive players. During his streaming career he amassed over 12 million followers across Twitch and YouTube.
Tfue’s influence on the early Fortnite competitive scene was unmatched, and his retirement marked the end of an era. However, after a 5 month break, the king of Fortnite has announced his anticipated return.
Returning to Streaming on KICK
In his recent video, Tfue expressed excitement to get back into streaming, this time on a new platform called KICK. KICK is a relative newcomer to the streaming space that has been gaining traction over the last year.
The footage begins with the legendary content creator buried in sand on a beach. Fans quickly learn that, after he gets up and reveals himself, he walks straight into his house through his iconic window.
Many fans speculated that Tfue would return to Twitch, where he originally rose to fame. However, his move to KICK reflects a desire to start fresh. At the end of the video he even wears the hat with the logo of the popular streaming service.
Given Tfue’s immense popularity, his return to streaming on KICK will likely draw increased attention to the platform. Especially after other big content creators like Ninja, xQC and many others have transitioned over in recent months. The latest being Nickmercs who signed for a whopping $10 Million deal just last month.
The Return of a Legend
While the details of Tfue’s streaming schedule and plans remain unclear, his return is an exciting development for the Fortnite community. One of the game’s original stars is back, and fans are eager to see Turner reclaim his throne.
His return also brings up questions – Will Tfue return to competitive Fortnite? Will he interact with other major streamers? Regardless of what happens, the king of the popular battle royale game has come back, and the streaming world is taking notice.
