While PewDiePie appeared to give up his fight on March 2, he later uploaded a video that same day, where he teased a mysterious plan to use in his defense.
The YouTuber was bemoaning the miniscule state of his sub gap over T-Series when he hinted at this plan - which could take place very soon, should his statement prove true.

“I have a trick up my sleeve,” Pewds said solemnly. “And it’s coming, okay? You best be scared, T-Series. If it’s not up already, keep an eye out.”
While Pewds has yet to post anything related to his war with T-Series via his social media accounts, he likewise discussed the probable return of his classic ‘Fridays with PewDiePie’ series - although he neither confirmed nor denied the possibility.
PewDiePie may also have another celebrity guest in store to host ‘Meme Review,’ following Elon Musk's’ appearance on the show in late February.
It seemed as though PewDiePie would be overtaken by T-Series that same day, as the subscriber gap between the two channels grew to less than 5,000.

Pewds even appeared to give up the fight, tweeting out “Looks like this is it,” in regards to T-Series’ sudden surge in subscribers.
However, PewDiePie continues to fend off the label despite speculation to the contrary - although he was momentarily overtaken on February 22 for a grueling 10-minute period.
PewDiePie has since retweeted a video from YouTuber Jacksfilms, who created a parody of Pewds' popular 'LIWAY' show. Since then, PewDiePie has shot above T-Series, and the gap is now over 28,000 subscribers as of 4:30 PST on March 2.
