After a significant amount of thought and consideration over the last several months, and with input from close friends and allies, I regret to inform all of you that BuzzIn will be coming to an end. To be completely honest, I’ve been losing interest in running BuzzIn shows, and it doesn’t provide me with the same level of satisfaction and joy that it has in years past.
I have also been feeling for a while like it’s time for a new chapter in my life. I’m not getting any younger, and I have prioritized BuzzIn and the online game show scene over my own quality of life for far too long. BuzzIn has been around for five years. That’s a lot of shows, a lot of players, and a lot of effort, for something that has very little return. BuzzIn is not doing anything to advance my life, and is not a realistic choice for a career. By no means is BuzzIn a failure, but it genuinely makes me wonder just how much longer it could go on for, as I begin to transition into a new part of my life and give attention to things that I needed to do a decade ago, but I wasn’t either capable of or willing to do then.
Ultimately, this is not a decision I have come to lightly, but it is one that I feel is right for me at this time. Unfortunately, I will not entertain offers to transition BuzzIn itself or its assets to other people or groups. Maybe this isn’t the last you’ll see of BuzzIn, only time will tell.
Effective immediately, all BuzzIn events will cease production. We won’t be airing any more shows on Twitch, or uploading new videos to YouTube. You’ll still be able to watch everything we’ve created, and we’ll be making several behind the scenes videos available to everyone for the first time soon, but there will be no new content coming from BuzzIn Studios for the foreseeable future.
Effective May 1, our Discord server will be locked, and channels will be set to read only. It will continue to exist only as an archive, and we will not be publishing any new content. As a result, we will also be discontinuing BuzzIn Dollars and BuzzIn+. Active subscriptions to BuzzIn+ will not renew in May. We will not be able to offer refunds for subscriptions that have already been renewed in April.
Thank you to everyone who has supported BuzzIn for the last five years, attended our shows, and become part of our community. We have accomplished far more than I could have ever hoped for. It has been a fun ride, but all things must come to an end eventually.
