Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has announced he’s taking a break from YouTube next year.

The news comes via the Pewdz latest video, “YouTube’s New Update Has A BIG FLAW!”, which confirms later in the video that he is taking a break.

“I’ve made up my mind. I’m tired. I’m feeling very tired. I don’t know if you can tell,” PewDiePie said. “Early next year I’ll be away for a little while. I’ll explain that later but I wanted to give you a heads up.”

The biggest individual video creator on the platform has been doing video for many years, adding “it would be nice to not have YouTube in my brain for the first time in ten years.”
