Mentioning the looming milestone of turning 30 in a couple of years, xQc admitted, “Here’s a very hot take, looking back, I should have probably retired two years ago. Now I’m probably never going to retire, but looking back, I can definitely tell you I should have retired two years ago.”
This revelation echoes sentiments expressed by xQc in the past, specifically during an appearance on the CouRage and Nadeshot Show, where he hinted at the possibility of retiring when he no longer finds joy in streaming.
xQc emphasized the importance of maintaining passion, stating, “If I don’t have the passion, how can I translate that passion to people? I don’t want to make them watch something that I don’t feel like doing. It’s almost like I’m scamming people.”
The contrast between his current stance on never retiring and his earlier sentiments raises questions about the evolving dynamics of xQc’s relationship with streaming. While the financial windfall from the lucrative Kick deal is undeniable, fans are left wondering whether the allure of wealth has altered his perspective on the genuine enjoyment of the craft.
As xQc navigates this reflection phase, the streaming community eagerly awaits further insights into the motivations behind his statements and the potential impact on his content creation journey. The juxtaposition of financial success and personal fulfillment in the streaming world continues to intrigue fans and industry observers alike.
