Last night, popular variety content creator Autumn Rhodes announced she joined Version1. Autumn started streaming in 2015 and partnered with Twitch the same year. Since then her community has continued to grow; she has over 180,000 followers on Twitch and counting. Autumn plays, streams and competes in various titles including her current favorite, GTA 5 Role Play and all-time favorite, The Last of Us.
Autumn is the first content creator to join Version1 and the second to join the overall organization. Minnesota Røkkr signed top Call of Duty: Warzone streamer Blazt in April. As V1 grows, it’s continuously looking for ways to diversify to entertain esports fans and gamers, including by adding influential content creators to its ranks.
“As we grow the Version1 brand beyond our competitive rosters, Autumn is the ideal content creator to take this first step with,” says Brett Diamond, chief operating officer at Version1. “She has one of the fastest growing personal brands in gaming, is incredibly talented in-game and on camera and is genuinely a great person. Autumn had options to join more established organizations, and the fact she wanted to be part of the team building Version1 from the ground up is a big part of why we’re so excited about the future. We are thrilled to welcome Autumn to the Version1 family.”
As her community grows, Autumn continues to pursue opportunities that champion inclusivity in gaming, including through initiatives like V1SIONAIRES, a women-only gaming tournament series produced by V1. In 2021, Autumn was featured in season one of Amazon Prime’s documentary “Gamebreakers”, a show that profiles top streamers, content creators and esports pros making an impact in the gaming world.
Autumn’s other recent achievements include winning Version1’s Emergency Meeting $10K Among Us Tournament and LG’s UltraGear FACE-OFF VALORANT Tournament. She participated in Bud Light Seltzer’s Battle of the Best multi-game tournament in September 2020 and regularly competes in Twitch Rivals playing Call of Duty: Warzone, VALORANT, Apex, Fall Guys and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
Autumn graduated from college as a veterinary assistant and loves animals. She regularly supports animal-related causes including rescue shelters and an orangutan organization. Her Pomeranian mix Charlie makes regular appearances alongside her on streams and social media and is loved by her community.
