Rust Twitch Rivals 2 Set Returning
Rust Twitch Rivals, one of Twitch’s most popular and contentious Twitch Rivals events of the year, intends to return with a follow-up. It appears that it will be even bigger and better than the previous one.
The information was obtained from Twitchcon, where Dot Esports had the good fortune to speak with Steven Flisler, Vice President of Original Content and Executive Producer for Twitch Rivals, while attending the events. Among other things, Flisler gushed about the occasion and assured us that there would be a new event in the future, although he did not specify when.
Flisler said; “I’m not going to break the news for when the next Rust event is. But I can tell you it’s going to be bigger. It’s coming. Ok? There might be four teams, four captains… we are going to bring back the in-game press and commentators. And we will evaluate where things could go wrong.”
Fliser is obviously making reference to how the first Rust event concluded with the Spanish team forfeiting the game prior to the dramatic conclusion. There was a ton of drama, accusations of cheating on both sides, and a ton of bloodshed during the event.
However, players should anticipate that the upcoming event will be even bigger and bolder than the last one, with ideally a final clash between the competing teams. According to Flisler, “There is also going to be more items and drops and stuff and it’s going to be hype. It’s going to be really cool.”
Rust Twitch Rivals 2 has not yet received an official announcement, thus some of the preparation and details Flisler provided to us may alter when it is. Fans will undoubtedly be thrilled to see one of the most important streaming events of the year return at some point in the future.
