The only thing I can imagine is his lawyer fees have be astronomical for the last year.I mean, just a few months ago, he'd frequently complain during gameplay videos that he couldn't afford an editor anymore, because he allegedly didn't make enough money. During his "death gate" playthrough, he got stuck during an episode and it took him almost 20 minutes or so to figure out what to do. During that episode, he kept saying: "this could all get cut out if I had an editor, but my gameplay videos aren't making as much money as they used to etc etc".
It felt like a way to get sympathy bucks on patreon from his followers and it was quite annoying. It it turns out that he was bullshitting and he actually still makes enough money for an editor, that'd be shitty. But who knows.
Anyway, he's not doing that anymore now.
