X-Play’s Adam Sessler Leaves G4; Departure Rumored to Be “Not Amicable”
Long-time X-Play co-host Adam Sessler is parting ways with G4, and rumor has it that his departure was not on good terms. In many ways, Sessler was X-Play, having been with the show since its 1998 debut. Today will mark his final appearance on the gaming TV program.
A statement from Sessler’s representative reads:
Television personality Adam Sessler and TV network G4 are parting ways, with Adam’s last episode as host of G4′s “X-Play” airing on the network today, Wednesday, April 25. Adam has been hosting the show since it first aired as ZDTV’s “Gamespot TV” in July 1998 and he also served as Editor In Chief of games content at G4. His current projects include starring as himself in the Summer 2012 movie “noobz” and consulting with a film production company on theatrical feature adaptations of video games. Adam intends to stay in front of the camera and continue as a key voice within the games industry. He also sings and is available for weddings and bar mitzvahs.
According to Kotaku, Sessler is leaving due to a contractual dispute, and the departure was not on amicable terms.
We wish Sessler well on his future projects.
