PewDiePie Launches “Talent Squad” Network in Latest Maker Studios Venture

According to a recent Variety report, major-League YouTuber Felix Kjellberg has hunkered down with Disney’s Maker Studios to launch Revelmode, a new network devoted to supporting other online talents.

Having affiliated with Maker Studios since 2012, Kjellberg announced that Revelmode’s prime focus will be the support of content creators existent both within and outside the realms of YouTube, extending to Facebook, as well as “other platforms”.

Despite the 26-year-old’s discernible roots in the shooty bang-bang, Kjellberg assured that the network’s features could range from “one-off videos to original series to gamey games to animatoons, music, clothes, charity drives, and more”.

Kjellberg expressed that the idea for the collaborative network “was built from my own experiences” and “will aim to bring together an Avengers like Talent Squad to work and grow a business together”

Assembling alongside Kjellberg at launch will be his partner, CutiePieMarzia, as well as Jacksepticeye, Markiplier, Emma Blackery, Dodger, CinnamonToastKen and Jelly. Despite the venture’s fervour for entertainment and merchandise, however, Revelmode will also comprise more philanthropic endeavours, encouraging fundraising for charities such as Save the Children.

Courtney Holt, head of Maker Studios is “thrilled to be doubling down with Felix”, also stating, “He is an amazing talent, a great partner and the pulse of millennial pop culture. We firmly believe in his vision for Revelmode and his chosen creators–we can’t wait to see the possibilities ahead.”

Although Revelmode’s website isn’t beefy by any means at present, you can subscribe to the network’s mailing list, as well as ‘get plugged in’ via social media.

The Swedish star’s other recent accomplishments include his Random House book, This Book Loves You and iTunes top-charter, Legend of the Brofist, developed with Outerminds.
