The YouTube community has been celebrating the dominance of MrBeast on the platform for a while now. However, MrBeast claiming the throne of the ‘Most Subscribed YouTube Channel’ has still remained a long-held desire. But not for long! The recent progression of the YouTuber with numbers has certainly narrowed down the gap between his channel and rival T-Series. Well, as the creator moves closer to the biggest takeover each day, the community has already started speculating on a new chapter of YouTube’s infamous subscriber war. 

As a content creator, MrBeast has witnessed a phenomenal surge in numbers not just on YouTube but all across his social media profiles. The four-time Creator of the Year Award winner has already recorded the numbers that the analysts had predicted for the end of 2023. Thus, Jimmy’s fans believe the ultimate surpassing of T-Series might be closer than expected. The outgrowing numbers certainly help their case. Inspired by all the buzz around, a Reddit discussion has predicted the future of YouTube content warfare.

At the time of writing, T-Series has 253 million subscribers, whereas Jimmy’s main channel has 213 million subscribers. The 40 million difference is big, and for any other creator, covering this gap while both channels grow could have been a task for years. But considering the ‘hot form’ YouTube King is in, this might not be a long shot.

Refreshing your memory, PewDiePie, the Swedish streamer and creator, lost the 100 million subscriber race against T-Series back in April 2019. While the Reddit user predicted the takeover would happen in the near next five-year window, a lot of fans argued it was an exaggerated prediction. In fact, it appears to a lot of MrBeast fans that the countdown to the takeover has already begun.
