Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has been planning to host an ambitious 60-day subathon next month. Much to the chagrin of those waiting with bated breath for it to start, the streamer now eyeing a date later this year to be a part of Twitch history.
Popular Twitch streamer and YouTuber Ludwig Ahgren took the streaming world by storm last month. Ahgren broadcasted every minute of his life from Mar. 14 to Apr. 14, playing games, seeing friends, and even sleeping in his red racing car bed.
Ludwig made his way into the history books as the most subscribed Twitch streamer of all time, a title previously held by Ninja. The now-iconic subathon netted him a staggering 270k subscribers across 31 days.
Several streamers, including xQc, want a slice of this Twitch pie. “We’ll beat the record, by a longshot,” he claimed.
While his fans have been waiting with bated breath for the subathon, which is slated to run for 60 days, the French-Canadian streamer has postponed it until “the end of the year.”
During an appearance on Nmplol’s May 27 stream, xQc announced the Twitch subathon delay. The Twitch star said the “big bucks” he could earn over 60 days at the end of 2021 is just too tempting to pass up.
“I’ve thought about it, [and] I’m not doing it [next month],” xQc said about his promised subathon. He also confirmed that he was eyeing a new date around “the end of the year” to kick off the much-awaited subathon.
The two-month saga is likely to kick off in Dec. “My five-head thinking is doing it Q4. Ads are going to be so wild,” he added.
“The closer you are to Q4… they’re madness!” he said. “Two times, three times as big!”
xQc wants to cash in on the boosted CPM (cost per mile) that Twitch offers its partners during the holiday seasons, Dexerto reported. Twitch’s ad revenueTwitch’s ad revenue increases since there are more eyes on streams.
Oh, you’d make so much money! Dude, you’re going to make $2 million in ads in a month,” Ludwig pointed out.
While xQc fans will be disappointed since the 60-day subathon has been pushed back, it makes sense why the Twitch star isn’t willing to start just yet. Nevertheless, the show is expected to be a spectacle when it finally begins in Dec.
