PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG for short) has been standing on the top of the battle-royale titles list for a while. And this time, as a step to make use of the game's popularity as much as possible, PUBG Corp is expanding its branch to another genre. It's making a new narrative PUBG game!

A new game from the new studio headed by a veteran creator

Planning on creating a new "original narrative experience" that takes the settings in the same universe, PUBG Corp is setting up a new studio, It's called Striking Distance, and it will be headed by the creator with plenty of experience in making story-driven titles - Glen Schofield.

Here's the introducing video of the new studio, and Glen will tell you his feeling as well as his intention with the upcoming game:

To give you more information on Striking Distance's head, Glen Schofield is the creator that stood behind many narrative titles. He's the former vice president of Visceral Games - the developer of Dead Space and also the co-founder of Sledgehammer - the studio behind the Call of Duty series.

Now, in the new studio, Glen will have a chance to continue his dreams of making other story-driven titles: Glen further expressed his delight to work in the PUBG universe:

"As a creative, the freedom to explore the PUBG universe has me excited about the possibilities, which I view as beyond the battle royale genre."

Let's see the story behind the unknowns!

From the hand of the industry's veteran, we can expect the game to be extraordinary. And I can't wait to see how the game will look (and feel!)

A wise step from PUBG Corp

Since its debut in 2017, the 100-player battle royale title PUBG has been soaring in popularity. Its success has led to many other developers to follow, which resulted in other games in the same genre to follow. Some of the most famous ones in the industry are Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Battlefield.

However, as more and more creators want to step in the battle-royale trend, it's very likely that this genre can't maintain its hype for much more time. That's why PUBG Corp's move is a wise one.

The industry is flooded with incoming battle royale titles

Starting when the PUBG is still getting a lot of attention, making another title in the same universe can easily catch players' eyes. Furthermore, as other contestants like Battlefield and Apex Legends all take the settings in the previous narrative title (Battlefield and Titanfall), PUBG having a title that explains the whole concept behind the game is very good for the franchise.

Nevertheless, I'm still waiting for the see why a hundred of players jump out of the plane just to fight in a deadly battle! Playing the game understanding the plot behind always makes us more excited, right!
