This is breaking news and I'm no journalist, so bear with me here.
The video team has plans to go independent. From their new Discord, they made this statement (from Nick Calandro):
I was fired from The Escapist along with many others today, and in response the entire video team, including Yahtzee, has resigned from The Escapist.
Our plan is to go independent, but we will share more plans on that later this week.
