Will Shroud ever return to professional streaming?

This question comes up time and time again, especially because of statements like this. However, the truth of the matter is straightforward- the streamer has no motivation to return to professional settings. He has already answered the question on multiple occasions, stating that professional games put a lot of stress. Something that the streamer does not enjoy, and he merely wants to create content and stream for his fans.

He took this decision back in 2018, and it has been one of the best career moves. Not only did he earn millions of dollars but also saw his popularity improve exponentially. From being one of the biggest names in the Counter-Strike Global Offensive, he has now become one of the biggest streamers of all time.
