Is Jeremy Dooley Leaving Achievement Hunter?
The fantastic video gaming division of Rooster Teeth Productions, ‘Achievement Hunter,’ has been providing non-stop entertainment to fans of video games ever since its conception in 2008. If you haven’t already guessed it, the name is derived from the popular practice of hunting for achievements while playing 7th, 8th, and the current generation of video games. Over the years, ‘Achievement Hunter’ has been a top content creator solely for the hilarious, entertaining, and exciting videos they put out.
Jeremy Dooley has always been one of the key members of ‘Achievement Hunter.’ He became a popular member of the group and contributed heavily to the videos. Recently, with his appearance dwindling on recent videos, fans have been alarmed about his possible departure. Is Jeremy Dooley leaving ‘Achievement Hunter?’ Well, we come bearing answers!
A content creator, actor, streamer, and YouTuber, Jeremy Dooley was a well-known figure in the ‘Achievement Hunter’ community even before becoming an official member of the group. He regularly contributed to the Community Hunter channel, and his claim to fame was the beloved ‘Imaginary Achievements’ series. Moreover, he also started another series called’ Epic Rap Battles of Rooster Teeth,’ which he uploaded on the YouTube channel Achievements4Idiots.
On July 6, 2014, the ‘Achievement Hunter’ team had their panel in RTX 2014, Rooster Teeth’s annual gaming and internet convention. During the event, Jeremy and community member, Matt Bragg, decided to ask for jobs jokingly. To Jeremy’s utter surprise, co-founder Geoff Ramsey took them on their word and made them official group members. After joining ‘Achievement Hunter’ in an official capacity, Jeremy held a slew of jobs which included editing, content creating, and working as a recurring host. On October 16, 2015, just a year and a few months after joining, Jeremy was officially declared as the new main co-host for ‘Achievement Hunter.’
With his new role requiring him to appear more frequently on videos, Jeremy soon became a fan-favorite member. His outstanding personality, coupled with his hilarious puns and jokes, warranted his steady rise to the top. Apart from co-hosting Achievement Hunter videos, Jeremy also got involved with the parent organization and lent his voice to Rooster Teeth’s animated videos. Additionally, he has worked for Rooster Teeth Live Action as an actor and content creator. The initial alarm about Jeremy leaving stemmed from him not being a frequent sight on ‘Achievement Hunter’ videos ever since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Furthermore, Achievement Hunters put out a “Best of August” video in 2020, which hinted at Jeremy’s possible departure.
