What happened to SeaNanners? 

Many fans are questioning if the hit YouTuber has decided to quit the lucrative industry of content creation. Since starting his account in 2009, Adam has consistently uploaded videos to his channel every month. However, the gamer has not posted in over a year, with his last upload featuring himself playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. So, why the sudden drop off in productivity? 

Well, according to Adam, he has decided to take a bit of a break from creating content. He explained to fans in his last video that he and his girlfriend (and cats) were busy traveling a lot and he did not have access to a PC. He also revealed that he was working on renovating multiple properties. “We’ve been very, very busy,” he told fans.

Though Adam has not put out any additional videos on his channel since May 2018, he has appeared in other YouTube gamers’ posts. In a November 2018 Twitch video, SeaNanners explained to his friend Shaun ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson that he did not officially retire from the industry, but he is taking a much needed break.

While he did not state how long his extended break from YouTube would last, for now, fans of SeaNanners will have to remain patient and hope for his return.

"I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunities Twitch has provided me,” the gamer told The Associated Press. “But as I looked at the next step in my career, I wanted to be somewhere that empowered me to push the boundaries of gaming and achieve bigger goals within the industry. Mixer provides me with more ways to connect with my community." 

After news broke that Ninja was leaving Twitch, he tweeted a statement to his followers, “I'm honestly at a loss for words," he wrote. "I'm freaking out in the best of ways, and I'm really just excited to finally — I just feel like I'm going to get back to the streaming roots, and that's what it's all about. I love you guys." He added: "Streams are going to be the exact same. I'm looking forward to seeing you guys on the platform."

Well, it seems the gaming industry is definitely changing …
