Earlier this year, Dr Disrespect said that he would be launching his own game development studio, intended to compete with mammoth video game publishers like Respawn and Activision.
Followingly, many fans speculate that the Doc could be debuting his "game-changing" battle royale game, which he has been teasing since earlier this year.
What is Midnight Society?
On 14th December, Dr Disrespect said that he would be revealing the "biggest announcement of [his] hot shot video game career" via Twitter. But, unfortunately, the Two-Time was quite cryptic and did not provide any other details.

The Twitter post did, however, include a QR code, which, when scanned, linked to a public Discord server, entitled, "Midnight Society." Upon further inspection, we also managed to find a website listing for Midnight Society.
However, the site is private and provides no further clues regarding Midnight Society and its purpose.
Inspecting the #consiracy-theory-clues text channel in the Midnight Society Discord server, some users uncovered a private Twitter account for Midnight Society as well.
While the Twitter account did not provide any further details, it is speculated that the bio might indicate Midnight Society's launch date, which is 14th December at 10 am (presumably U.S. time).
Many fans suspect that Midnight Society could tease the new "vertical" battle royale game that Dr Disrespect has been developing with his new Gaming Studio. Indeed, the Doc has also teased the game's artwork in previous YouTube Livestreams, so this is perhaps the most viable theory.
Beyond this, one Twitter user highlighted that the Midnight Society Discord server "Dev Team" includes Robert Bowling, the Studio Head and game developer at Dr Disrespect's Gaming Studio. Given this, it seems that all signs point to Dr Disrespect's new game.
Other fans speculate that the Doc could be releasing a new NFT collection, which is possible given the recent surge in interest but is less likely the case considering the evidence above.
One Twitter user speculated that the Doc might have won his lawsuit with Twitch. However, another user shot down this theory, citing that "lawsuits with multi-billion dollar company's (sic) do not get resolved within a year or two," therefore, it is unlikely.

At this time, there's not much evidence we can use to build a concrete case for either of these speculations. However, it does seem as though all signals point toward's Dr Disrespect's Gaming Studio and, potentially, his upcoming battle royale game.
Fortunately, we won't have to wait too long to find out what all the hype is about, as Dr Disrespect will go public with his "big announcement" tomorrow.
