Felix Kjellberg, popularly known as PewDiePie, has shared the reason behind his latest hiatus with fans.
PewDiePie has been an internet sensation for as long as one can remember. The popular YouTuber has a record of uploading videos every day for almost a decade. After feeling like he never had any time off, he finally decided to take a break in January 2020.
During his latest video, PewDiePie revealed that he will be taking another break from the platform this month. However, he also revealed a rather amusing reason behind the hiatus. PewDiePie assured his fans that he is alright on the video he uploaded on June 7th, explaining that he will be spending his time playing Minecraft during the break.
He showed great excitement over the Mojang game’s latest update named Caves & Cliffs, which went live on June 8th. With that being said, the YouTuber has been hinting at taking a vacation for quite some time now. He explained:
“I’m leaving when the new Minecraft update comes out that I’ve been waiting for, for months.”
As per the video PewDiePie’s uploaded on May 28th, the YouTuber is likely to spend around a week to finish playing the Minecraft expansion. So, fans can expect the YouTuber to come back sometime after June 13th. In that video, he said:
“And then between the 7th and the 13th, I will be away as well just so you know. I get summer holiday this year, so does Sive.”

PewDiePie is one of the highest subscribed YouTube channels in the world. There were plenty of times when the YouTuber went insanely viral and was trending. For instance, when he went on an all-out subscriber war with the Indian video music channel named T-series in 2018.
The Youtuber went viral again in 2019, thanks to the increasing popularity of his Minecraft videos. Although his Bro Land save file had come to an end in 2020, he started a hardcore mode series from scratch in 2021. We hope to see him make a comeback with a third Minecraft series.
