In a video titled "It's been real, but I'm out", posted ahead of his break from the video platform, PewDiePie can be seen sipping a drink and announces his exit
"I'm savouring every moment," he said.
"The truth is, I don't want to go on a break, truth is, I love making videos. I just feel like I need to do this. So one last LWIAY," he said.
The Swedish YouTuber then went through a bunch of Reddit meme submissions and we have to admit things got a little emotional, reports metro.co.uk.
Pouring himself a drink, he ended the clip by saying: "I just wanted to take this moment to give a toast thank you for watching across the years it is a big thing, even though it isn't a big thing.
"I want to say thank you for watching my videos; it makes me happy Cheers to you. One thing I really realised is I love making videos and I love interacting with you guys but I think this year has been so much piling up that I should probably cool down for a bit. Then I will come back with 10,000%."
"I don't know when I'll be back, but have a good time. Just, like, enjoy yourself."
He has become the biggest YouTuber star of all time, collecting a whopping 100 million subscribers over the past decade thanks to his gaming and opinion videos.
