Tfue Announces Retirement in Final Heartfelt Video

Following several years at the top of his game, streaming and content creation sensation, Tfue, has announced his retirement from gaming and streaming in a final, long-form video. He posted this video following a period of patchy posting that saw him put out almost nothing in the way of content, and now we know why. In his video, he explains that he doesn’t want to make content for the money anymore, and he’d rather focus on his ‘IRL’ life and his family and friends.

At the time of publishing, Tfue boasts 11.7 million subscribers on YouTube, 11.4 million followers on Twitch, and just over 4 million followers on Twitter. He’s a masterful creator that has created an impressive legacy over the years, specialising most prominently in Fortnite, Warzone, and Minecraft, going so far as setting a world-record-grade speed run in the latter title.

Farewell to the Grind

It’s not all that common to see top-tier content creators give up their grind these days. If anything, they only get more invested over time – the biggest names in the business are working their way into their thirties and are still working hard at the grind.

With experience in the esports arena, tangible proof of his skills as a competitor, and more than 1.5 billion views on YouTube, Tfue has proven over the years time and again why he’s one of the most-followed content creators in the world. Even in retirement, his channels will continue to sit near the top of the rankings – he’s not likely to delete the channels, as we can honestly expect some kind of a return further down the line.

Here’s the forty-minute-long video that Tfue posted to discuss what’s next in his life:

There’s no doubt that Turner Ellis Tenney – otherwise known as Tfue for all these years – will leave a sizeable hole in the content creation industry, but every road must come to an end at some point.

Do you have any fond memories of watching Tfue’s content?
