RIP, Machinima? In a complete surprise, practically every single video from the classic gaming-related media network has been wiped clean on YouTube. Content creators reportedly had zero indication this was going to happen. According to Destructoid, “This comes as a result of a planned merger with Ellation, which is a part of Otter Media, which is actually a division of AT&T and WarnerMedia.” Moving forward, it's anyone's guess as to what AT&T plans to do with the Machinima network. It's still a valuable channel, as it has approximately 12.4 million subscribers on YouTube. But this story isn't about the future. It's about the thousands of hours of original video game content that suddenly disappeared into the ether -- beloved series like Two Best Friends Play, Arby 'n' the Chief, Teenage Pokemon (which was created by Destructoid's own Jonathan Holmes), and so many more.
