Machinima pulls all YouTube videos saying it has "pivoted from distributing content on legacy channels"

The YouTube page for multiplatform online entertainment network, Machinima, has removed all its videos from public viewing.

As reported by Kotaku, Machinima has seemingly set all videos on its YouTube channel to private, removing years of creative output and emptying a channel with almost 12.4 million subscribers.

Subsidary channels, such as Machinima Happy Hour and Machinima Trailer Vault have also had their videos removed from public view.

It would appear that the platform – which featured content such as BFFs, Super Best Friends Play, Christopher Walkenthrough, and more – did not notify any of its followers nor creators of the changes and, at the time of writing, there is no official word on any of Machinima’s official social media accounts. As news spreads, fans and creators are sharing their memories via the hashtag, #RIPMachinima.

Sad to see the catalogue go. As many have already said Machinima was a special place filled with amazing people. I feel lucky to have been part of it. #RIPMachinima

“Otter Media really just went and deleted Machinima, Happy Hour, Respawn, Realm, Prime, Inside Gaming, ETC, everything,” tweeted former creator and employee of Machinima, Jeremy Azevedo, while former creator Matt Dannevik said: “Sad to see the catalogue go. As many have already said Machinima was a special place filled with amazing people.”

Wow… they finally went ahead and deleted everything we'd ever done.
7+ Years of work… lost to the sands of time. #RIPMachinima

Make sure you're subbed to our new channel that we started after leaving Machinima last june – – thanks

“Wow… they finally went ahead and deleted everything we’d ever done,” added Lawrence Sonntag. “7+ Years of work… lost to the sands of time. #RIPMachinima”

Machinima was founded at the turn of the millennium and was later acquired by Warner Bros. Digital Networks in 2016. After Warner Bros., in turn, was acquired by AT&T in 2018, Machinima was subsumed by the AT&T’s owned multi-channel network, Fullscreen, which is operated by Otter Media.

In a statement to Kotaku, owners Otter Media said: “We are focused on creating new content with the Machinima team, which will be distributed on new channels to be announced in the coming months.

In the meantime the Machinima network of creator channels continues to showcase the talents of the network. As part of this focus on new content, we have pivoted from distributing content on a handful of legacy operated channels.”
