26-year-old Michael 'Shroud' Grzesiek recently posted a cryptic tweet after more than a month. Shroud is one of the biggest names in the gaming industry and has a lot of experience in a plethora of games such as PUBG, Fortnite, Apex Legends, Escape from Tarkov, and others.
He has been a pro streamer on Twitch and Mixer, with millions of followers.
However, he has been missing from the competitive scene for quite a long time now, and his social media profiles have also mainly remained inactive.
His last tweet before his month-long sabbatical addressed the Mixer shutdown, where he thanked the community for their support:
It now seems that Shroud may have figured out his next step, in terms of signing a professional deal.
He posted a cryptic GIF of pulling the trigger, which many have interpreted as him signing a potential pro deal.
Check out his latest tweet below:
