After taking a well-earned break from streaming, Rachel "Valkyrae" Hofstetter has confessed that she has actually been "miserable" during her time off. 

On January 14, Valkyrae announced that she was taking a break from streaming and that she wouldn't be returning until her "next announcement" video was ready. However, just exactly what that meant left her fans puzzled. As she promised that wasn't about to quit streaming, many were left to wonder whether it could be that the YouTuber could soon be moving back to Twitch. 

She may be on holiday, but that hasn't stopped Valkyrae appearing alongside her friends in their streams. During one of which, the 30-year-old revealed that she has been "miserable" during her time off. 

Why Has Been Valkyrae Been "Miserable" During Her Streaming Break?

On January 24, Valkyrae joined Leslie "Fuslie" Fu, "Ramee" and "Sykkuno" for their playthrough of Grand Theft Auto V when she was asked how her time off had been, but her response wasn't what they were expecting. The YouTuber responded: "I am so miserable. I wanna stream so bad. Do you know how people want what they can't have? I want to stream so bad but I just have to wait… I have one more week."

It isn't entirely clear why exactly Valkyrae give herself the streaming break. However, there have been a number of content creators over the years who have also made the decision to give themselves some time off for a variety of reasons. For example, Twitch emperor Felix "xQc" Lengyel announced he was having some time away for a bit as well as YouTubing king Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg. Even Valkyrae's friend Imane "Pokimane" Anys was close to quitting altogether at one point.

Is Valkyrae Moving Back To Twitch? 

On January 26, Valkyrae posted a YouTube video called her "last stream on YouTube." However, was Fans were a little disappointed that Valkyrae didn't get any hints as to what exactly her upcoming, mysterious announcement video could be. However, she did claim that her future content could feature a lot of Grand Theft Auto playthroughs as she's been having a lot of fun with the game away from the camera. 

As a result, fans have debated whether or nor the 100 Thieves co-founder could soon be moving back to Twitch after she left the platform back in January 2020 to exclusively work for YouTube. Given how it was the platform which she started her streaming journey on in the first place, it wouldn't be an unexpected decision.
