John Allen, a YouTuber who was a "insider" role in a video game industry, has issued an apology video in which he admits being motivated by "clout" and "the buzz."

Allen gained considerable internet fame by leaking information about Ubisoft''s various Assassin''s Creed announcements, which he had been given by Ubisoft himself to develop content as under embargo.

Allen deleted the tweet, the insider account, and later issued a brief Twitter statement stating sorry over the weekend.

A further apology for today, posted on Allen''s main YouTube channel, goes into more detail. Here, he notes that other comments he had posted were simply fabricated, including indications about the upcoming Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid remakes, which had gotten fans cheated.

"I talked about the remake of Silent Hill and [a] Metal Gear Solid, and I can say that there were no NDAs [non-disclosure agreements] involved there, because it''s all bullshit.

"It''s all lies, bullshit secondhand remarks," he said. "Half the posts were educated guesses."

Allen admitted on his reasoning for why he leaked details even after signing agreements with companies such as Ubisoft to hear information ahead of time.

Allen said that "I''m ashamed of it." "It was pathetic and disobey." And, as a result, a lot of people are raging and saying, "Well, why did you do it?" and, in turn, it''s the spirit, it''s being addicted to the thrill of thousands waiting on what you''re gonna say.

"I''ve taken for granted my access, my around 200k subscribers, and the ease of content taken for granted for this creeping facade, and I''m ashamed and disgraced. I''ve never felt sorry for myself, because it''s my fault, and no one else else''s is it. And I''ve lost personal, business-wise, opportunities for those five seconds of fame. And, as you know, I take full responsibility."

What''s next for Allen? The YouTuber concludes by saying that he will step away from the limelight for the time being before returning to being a "positive force."

"I''ll take some time off now, only to try and learn from his mistake and return as a positive force and not a negative."

"Again, I''m likely not going to return to Twitter because I''m not welcome or should I be after after what I''ve done. Perhaps I will return, but at the end of the day, I''m just sorry. And I can''t reverse time, but what I can do is to try to be a better man moving forward. "I promise you that this will never happen again. And I will learn from these mistakes."
