Sykkuno is one of the most popular Twitch streamers, and recently revealed how much his revenues have fallen since the peak of Among Us. His YouTube channel has also suffered a significant impact.
After the supposedly instant success of Among Us, the internet went into a frenzy. Even though InnerSloth had existed since 2018, the party game really took off in 2020. Everyone became more interested from that point on. Social media was flooded with memes and highlights, from celebrities as well as casual players. The popularity of Among Us helped content creators, Sykkuno, Valkyrae and Corpse Husband playing a crucial role.
The four had great success before the game was abandoned in May 2021. A few of the four have returned for special lobbies, but only a few.
Among Us has ceased to be active but they have continued success with other games. Sykkuno became a prominent player in GTA RP. He did however reveal that he’s not earning as much as Among Us in terms of earnings.
The Twitch Star discussed the “unstable job” of being a Twitch streamer on his Twitch Live broadcast, October 2. He cited an example from his life and how it relies on many other things.
He said, “From YouTube alone I make approximately 10% more than I made from the Among Us days. People think that streamers are rich, but I’ve only had a few months and make 10x less than I did before. Although I do not consider myself poor, it is very unstable what you earn .”
Sykkuno acknowledged that he has always been frugal. However, he is cautiously adjusting now that he knows how quickly things can change. He’s having great success on Twitch – according to TwitchTracker he reached 35,000 during the Subathon. But things could quickly get worse.
