YouTube millionaire PewDiePie is now the star of his own network.
Felix Kjellberg, 26, from Sweden, has more than 40 million followers on YouTube, where he plays and comments on video games. The channel earns him around $12 million a year, according to Forbes, making him the wealthiest YouTube personality in the world.
Now he's starting his own online video network called Revelmode in partnership with Disney's Maker Studios.
"How's it going bros?" he said in a YouTube video released on Wednesday. "Revelmode is me and a bunch of awesome YouTubers coming together as a group to do awesome things."
Joining him are Ken Morrison (known as CinnamonToastKen on YouTube), Marzia Bisognin (CutiePieMarzia), Brooke Lawson (Dodger) and other YouTube stars. Revelmode will be available on YouTube, Facebook and its own website, and will make one-off shows, series, games, music and clothes.
"Together we will create content, raise money for charity and so much more," the network said Wednesday on its Facebook page. "We are Revelmode!"
