Update: It has now been confirmed that Daequan and Hamlinz are back, and joining NRG. They confirmed the move with a video.

Original story continues below...

When Fortnite ascended gaming and streaming into the limelight that streamers danced within (quite literally), TSM's trio of Ali "Myth" Kabbani, Darryle "Hamlinz" Hamlin, and Daequan "Daequan" Loco were three of the biggest breakout personalities in the environment. 

However, as Myth opted to fuel his competitive hunger with further ventures into Fortnite and the newly-released VALORANT, both Hamlinz and Daequan vanished from the internet. The trio, who lived together in the TSM content house, all separated, as Fortnite's popularity began to evolve with new audiences.

Now, the pair of streamers look set to make a huge return to the internet, having been on a mysterious 18-month hiatus.

Having taken time away from the streaming environment due to reasons related to their personal lives, both Hamlinz and Daequan look set to be making a comeback. 

Speaking on the Courage and Nadeshot Show, Myth spoke about how grief and health issues were impactful in their escape from the internet, and now it appears that the two have found solace to return to the cameras.

Multiple posters and billboards have been featuring Daequan and Hamlinz around Los Angeles, with the tag of "Find The Streamers". 

After last streaming in March 2020, Daequan took to Twitter to throw some cryptic glances on the timeline, which was quickly followed up by Hamlinz. 

Despite the blurred organisations or brand names on their outfits, both content creators are still members of TSMFTX

According to Jake Lucky, the return to streaming will not be part of a platform deal, although the teasers do infer that the duo will be back in front of fans once again.

Daequan has retained a colossal 5.3 million subscribers on YouTube and a further 3.8 million followers on Twitch, whilst Hamlinz, who also hasn't uploaded since February 2020, has 1.4 million subs and 2.1 million followers on the respective platforms.

The "Find The Streamers" YouTube channel has also been live-streaming the LA billboard for 15-hours straight (as of writing), as yet another ambiguous teaser.
