Gaming news giant Sportskeeda was the first to report that.

Hyde’s Fishtank show based on Big Brother will feature participants who are locked in a house for 6 weeks and literally everything they do is televised live on the stream.

This June 25, Fishtank is taking an extreme turn with the launch of ‘Fishtank All-Stars Vampire Bloodgames.’ In this new season, six former winners will be placed in the woods and “hunted” by vampires at night.

A trailer for the project, released on May 10, promises “real life FPS gameplay” and “real life survival,” indicating a more intense and immersive experience for both participants and viewers.

Shortly after the trailer's release, Cenat announced his own Hunger Games-style event.

The Twitch icon said the new show will be live-streamed while maintaining a “professional” tone.

Cenat disclosed that he has been working on a Hunger Games-style event that he envisions to happen in half a year and hopes to have 50 of the greatest streamers in the world join the event live.

The Twitch streamer reached out to even Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson for his project.

Cenat expressed, “I want drones, I want combat suits…this has to be huge.”

Cenat also mentioned that he is in talks with Nike to become an official sponsor of the event.
