“I’m leaving when the new Minecraft update comes out that I’ve been waiting for, for months,” he said, of course referencing the Mojang game’s large expansion “Caves & Cliffs update” which goes live on June 8, 2021.

Although Pewds announced that he would be taking some time off to play the anticipated Minecraft release, the Swede didn’t go into detail as to whether he would be streaming his gameplay sessions live for viewers.

He did, however, hint at future uploads to his channel with the footage. “Don’t watch anyone else do the Minecraft update, because I have…” he teased.

The Caves & Cliffs Minecraft update officially releases on June 8, 2021. According to the YouTuber’s video on May 28, he will be taking around a week off from making videos so that he can play the expansion.

“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,” he said. Fans can expect the content creator to make his return on June 13, or slightly later.
