As they announced on UPF. Every one wish Dan good luck as he leaves Giant Bomb. Who will take his place? Where will he go? GBeast? Taco Bell? Iron Galaxy? Maybe we will find out this Tuesday on the Bombcast...

Is he actually leaving, or transferring to the NY office?

While I found the way they handled this and Austins farewell to be funny, the ambiguity of Dan's departure is a bit frustrating.

I thought it was nicely done. I reckon he's joining the East crew.

I hope its the weinebego and not NYC. Johny V was tweeting Dan about it so I hope this means its for real.

Is this related to the baldness? Was *that* ever explained?

I kinda hope not. Maybe it was mostly Austin's influence but I've come to view the east crew as being more serious about criticism, and while I like Dan and his humour in a lot of things I don't see that as being a good fit? Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised though.

He agreed he would leave town if he lost - he lost.

THESE are the facts.

Hahha we got a The Walking Dead level cliffhanger on a freaking UPF. What a website this is. Hope it's just a trip or something (RV trip with JV real?) because I need Dan and Brad's Hitman adventures in my life.

PS why all the other thread getting deleted?

That was the craziest and most hilarious ending to a UPF I've seen in my time on this site lol. Still a ton of people in chat wondering what the hell happened.

He is just leaving town, not GB, I guess. There is somewhere else he could go... :)

I doubt he would have been talking about more Hitman competitions with Brad just yesterday if he was planning on actually leaving the site.

Unless that was part of the swerve too! :0

Should I feel guilty because I secretly wish the way they announced it was real? Because that is totally the way we got rid of the annoying neighbour kid back in the day.

@dystopiax: I think the three would be a great team and I believe they would end up making awesome content. While I do see what you mean about GBeast being a little more serious about how they cover games, it's still Giant Bomb none the less.

If he's moving to New Jersey like it seems like he is, I seriously doubt this is a goodbye.

The inevitable Dan/Vinny Kerbal mishaps will be legendary. Can't wait.

Posted by Vinny:

YOU HEARD ME.

Dan Ryckert, in celebration of our upcoming 10k subscriber milestone, has graciously agreed to host an AMA on our wonderful subreddit about a website about video games.

The AMA is expected to occur after the Live Bombcast recorded on that Tuesday. This post will be updated to reflect any new information.

Tell your friends, loved ones, enemies, strangers you met in the odd smelling elevator today! Because duders, we have much, much more planned.

I'm sad to see him go, but the way they went about announcing it was interesting at least.

The goodbyes from Jason, Brad and Jeff were funny.

Could have done with a pre-recorded bit with Drew in tears or something, that would have been class.

Really funny way to announce this but I hope they tell us where Dan is going soon. I'd like to see him join GB East but I have a feeling he is moving on to something else.

I think Dan is leaving to be a wrestler. His twitter today kinda makes it look like that.

It may help explain this from earlier:
