Andreas Højsleth, known as “Xyp9x,” is a 24-year-old Danish CS:GO player who had been playing for Astralis jersey since January 2016. In his career, he earned over $1.700.000 from the tournaments that he attended.

After the rumors hit the community, Xyp9x has shared a new post on his official Twitter account today and explained why he decided to step back from the scene.

Xyp9x stated that he is leaving the active roster due to the burnout and stress and wanted to take a break from the competitive scene for a while to make sure he will have a good recovery. Also, his teammates shared their goodwill and best wishes to Xyp9x.

Here is what Xyp9x said:

“I have sadly been feeling burnout/stress symptoms chasing me over many months. It’s time to take the necessary break to rest and find the motivation to get back to competing for Astralis.

Everyone around me has done a great number of things in order to avoid it, and there is nothing that I would rather do than keep on playing without a break, but the time has come to take care of my health and therefore I have given in a sick note to Astralis.

I really want to extend a huge thank you to my teammates, the Astralis organization and everyone around me who has been very supportive in this time. I don’t know when I will be back competing but I hope for my fans understanding as this was a very hard decision for me to make.”
