Former Virtus.pro professional Fortnite player Dmitriy "hurma" Geynts will be switching his efforts with the organisation to now fill the role of a content creator. hurma will now be focussing his efforts on streaming, producing videos and other types of content, as he looks to step away from the competitive side of Fortnite.
"I've been a part of Virtus.pro my entire esports career and it was an incredible journey," said hurma. "People ask me if I miss those times and whether or not I want to come back, but, honestly, I feel like I've never left. Right now, I enjoy streaming and creating content and I'm glad that the club sees potential in this field. There's going to be a lot of interesting stuff in the next year!"
The statement coming from hurma about this change does leave the door open for him to return to competitive play down the line, however as of right now, he does fully intend to commit to content creation. Speaking further on the matter, Virtus.pro CEO Sergey Glamazda said;
"It's no secret that the fans love cool and quality content almost as much as they love victories. One of our goals for 2021 is to expand on our media field. We already have a standalone Fortnite channel on YouTube, and now we are taking another step and signing a full-time content creator for this discipline. Dima is one of the top streamers in Russian segment of Fortnite as he has grown a lot in the last year. I'm sure that his talent and our support will result in awesome collaboration for our followers."
