Emmett Shear, CEO of TWITCH, has announced his resignation from the popular streaming platform.

Emmett Shear, who has been with Twitch for 16 years, announced his departure on Thursday.

Twitch is an American video livestreaming service and an Amazon subsidiary, with a heavy emphasis on video game livestreaming.

“In October 2006 we started working on live video for the internet. That became Twitch,” Shear said on Twitter.

“More than 16 years later, I’m now a father and ready to move to my next phase of life,” he added.

Shear is a co-founder of Justin.tv, the live streaming service that evolved into Twitch.

The CEO explained the shocking decision further in a lengthy blog post.

“Twitch often feels to me like a child I’ve been raising as well,” Shear said.

“And while I will always want to be there if Twitch needs me, at 16 years old it feels to me Twitch is ready to move out of the house and venture alone.”

As far as his replacement goes, Twitch’s President Dan Clancy will take on the role of CEO.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that Shear chose Clancy to take over the role as the president was heavily involved with the company’s day-to-day operation, per Tech Crunch.

“Emmett has dedicated 16 years to building Twitch, fostering our mission, and inspiring and empowering all of us to serve this incredible community,” Clancy said in response to the news.

“I’m so grateful for his partnership over the last four years, and for the opportunity to continue this work alongside a team that cares so deeply about our streamers and the larger Twitch community,” he added.
