Wow…this is sad to see how Togashi needed to resort to revealing this too soon. The man’s health is deteriorating slowly and he feels his time could run out.

The author shared the ending of the series in case he passes away so that responsible people can give the series the send-off it deserves.
Yoshihiro Togashi's health is getting worse. This is the reason why he revealed the ending. He doesn't want to pass his manga to another author/artist because the manga is unique and the very form of their unique art itself self and it is disrespectful to pass it to someone else.

Although they eagerly await the chapters, they are worried and don’t want the author to take any health risks.
So disheartening that he now even considers the possibility of him dying before he gets to finish his magnum opus 💔 praying for his health man
Much thankful for your services Yoshihiro Togashi 💜 https://t.co/7x3Mo9N8hy

Being a manga author is a demanding task, as you have to meet deadlines and consistently deliver according to fan expectations, and periodically, this can take a toll on authors.
When will Hunter x Hunter return?
The return date of the Hunter x Hunter anime has yet to be declared, and it can take a long time before it does.
The writer has not issued any updates recently, but the fans crave information on when they can see their beloved characters back on screen.
Hunter x Hunter still has numerous unexplored aspects, and it can be one of the greatest and best-written stories in entire shonen history if the author’s fitness issues go away.
The anime is also on hold as there is not enough source material available to adapt, and it will take a few years’ worth of material before they can begin animating.
The fans are stranded with no information on the return date of Hunter x Hunter to their screens, but it will be huge whenever it does.
