Many in the community speculate that this date could mark the official announcement of his transition to Kick. However, others have suggested that the bird in the teaser might allude to potential streaming on Twitter.
Adding to the intrigue, Dr Disrespect received a figurative “handshake” from YouTube, as their official Twitter account followed him back, hinting at a possible collaboration.

He has previously stated that, if he were to make the leap to the emerging platform, he would require a contract worth a staggering $50 million. However, Kick’s Head of Product acknowledged his admiration for Dr Disrespect but acknowledged the substantial financial divide, stating, “I love the Doc. I’ve watched him for years and years. I think he’s one of the most entertaining streamers in the business, but fifty million is fifty million.”
As the streaming community awaits the cryptic unveiling on October 27, it remains to be seen whether Dr Disrespect will choose Kick as his new streaming home.
