Prominent streamer DrLupo has confirmed his ongoing commitment to YouTube, announcing that he has renewed his exclusive contract with the platform for another year. Initially making the jump from Twitch to YouTube in 2021, DrLupo stated emphatically, “I ain’t leaving.”
Recognized as one of TIME Magazine’s Top 25 Most Influential Internet Creators, DrLupo is a force to be reckoned with in the streaming world. He’s leveraged his platform to raise millions for charitable causes like St. Jude’s and has amassed a loyal following—close to two million subscribers on YouTube and an additional 4.5 million on Twitch.
During a recent live stream while playing “Escape from Tarkov,” DrLupo took a moment to casually share the news of his contract renewal with his audience. “Just so you know, we went ahead and re-signed with YouTube for another year. You’ve got me for another year, so you better enjoy it,” he commented.
Preferring to subtly announce the news during a live stream rather than make a splashy social media post, DrLupo made it clear that he’s in it for the long haul with YouTube. This extends his exclusive relationship with the platform into its third year, a move he once described as securing his financial future. “The financial offer from YouTube ensures I’m set for life,” he previously stated in an interview with the Washington Post.
As DrLupo prepares for another year on YouTube, the future beyond that remains uncertain, but what’s clear is that fans can look forward to more high-quality content from one of the internet’s most influential streamers.
