The most-viewed creator on YouTube, Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg, had announced that he would take a break from this platform by next year. The very fact that he has topped all YouTube charts in 2019 had been revealed this month, and now he is not pleased with the direction of YouTube. We do not know exactly why he is taking a break.
“I think now is a great time as any to announce I have special announcement to make,” PewDiePie had said.
“I am taking break from YouTube. Next year. I wanted to say it in advance because I made up my mind, I’m tired. I’m tired. I’m feeling very tired. I don’t know if you can tell. Just so you know, early next year I’ll be away for a little while. I’ll explain that later, but I wanted to give heads up.”
Considering that this year had seen PewDiePie hit 100 million subscribers, it seems like there is a lack of milestones. He has said that he is tired, and this may be the reason for a break, but the very fact that he had said that he will “explain that later” makes it seem like there is more.
Can we assume that PewDiePie is working on something else during the break? Speculation will make its round till he reveals the real reason for his break from YouTube.
