After a long and fruitful relationship with GTA Online, the enigmatic Sykkuno stated on stream that he may be taking a break from the game in the near future. Referring to the cyclical nature of the industry, he made it clear that this is not the game’s fault, just a fact of life.
In a recent broadcast, superstreamer Sykkuno, 30, dismissed a proposal to play GTA Online following a request from Twitch chat.
When asked by his fans to “please” play GTA, Sykkuno took the time to respond.
“Guys, I’ve said it before, GTA is like, it’s slowing down,” he explained. “I’ve spoken to MrLang, Tony, everyone and even the GTA main news is like ‘Hey guys what are we doing in GTA now?'”
With Sykkuno being so ingrained in the GTA RP scene that his in-game fit has become synonymous with the game itself, it’s not surprising to hear that the feelings he has towards the game are reflected in the scene are ubiquitous and claim, “Everybody doesn’t really feel comfortable there that much.”
However, it’s important to note that this isn’t the first time we’ve encountered a game disruption. A similar departure from the game occurred in September 2021, with streamers eventually returning with the release of the Cayo Perico heist months later.
“I think most people would agree that GTA is getting a little dated these days, there’s nothing wrong with that happening,” he continued. “It’s not the first time everyone’s taken a break. It will come back, it will come back eventually.”
Speaking about why he felt this way about taking a break, Sykkuno explained the feelings he and other GTA content creators have: “Guys we’re waking up and we have to force the content, it’s not like we’re waking up, because there’s a new heist to do or something. It’s a little dry feeling.”
Sykkuno made it clear he didn’t hate the game and that this wasn’t a death knell, further assuring: “Not to say it’s dead or anything, it will never die, there just isn’t that much to do.”
Always the go-between: Sykkuno went on to say that “maybe it’s just me, but I’ll say I’ve spoken to Mr. Lang and such and they all agree they felt about the same.”
Sykkuno wraps up his sentiments in his characteristic philosophical borderline, leaving us simple words of wisdom.
“You can’t play the same thing forever.”
