After reaching 100 million YouTube subscribers, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has been on a march to his next milestone – 110 million subs. However, it may take a little longer than planned.
PewDiePie is by far the most popular single YouTube creator on the platform, finally hitting the lofty goal of 100 million subscribers back in August following the war against T-Series, which raged on for nearly a year.
Since losing to the Bollywood production channel, Pewds hasn’t pushed hard for new subscribers, and he hasn’t been getting them in droves either. Instead, it’s been a steady flow. That’s not going to help him reach 110 million anytime soon, but he isn’t a million miles away either.
As it stands, the Swede sits on around 102 million subscribers, having passed that mark towards the end of October. As YouTube no longer keeps a live ticker of subs, it’s harder than normal to get an exact reading on when he hit that point.
Despite that though, thanks to SocialBlade, a website that tracks stats from numerous social media platforms, we do have projections for when he’s going to hit the next set of milestones as Pewds continues his growth.
According to the stat trackers, he’s set to finish the year at around 105 million subscribers – with the projection stating he’ll hit that mark around Christmas. As for 110 million, that’s not set to happen until April – sometime between the 10th and 13th.
Now, these projections could obviously change if the Swede sets his fans a target to hit, or if they even decide to surprise him with a huge push.
Again, though, that seems unlikely considering they haven’t gone as crazy as they did during the war with T-Series - where fans hacked GTA and even rented planes to spread the ‘Sub 2 PewDiePie’ message.
Compared to the wartime push, Pewds was hitting new goals in shorter spaces of time, and again, the power to push on like that rests firmly in the hands of his loyal fans.
