PUBG Corporation is said to be working on a brand new game. With the amount of popularity Playerunknown Battlegrounds or PUBG has gained, it doesn’t come as a surprise. Notably, this won’t be a sequel rather a new game in itself that will have an original narrative in the PUBG universe.
While the game doesn’t have a name or even a working title, we do know that it is being developed by a new studio called Striking Distance. The company is headed by Glen Schofield who has been credited for popular games like Call of Duty and Dead Space. Apart from that, there is no crucial information about the gameplay as it is still in its early stages. There is no information around the release date either.
As of now, we can only speculate as to what kind of game will be developed by the new studio. Since it is confirmed that the new game won’t be a sequel for PUBG, it could be a completely new game and might not have any of the battle royale features.
Big new! I’m proud and honored to announce that I am now part of PUBG Corporation. Working together, we are building a AAA game studio called Striking Distance in San Ramon, CA. — Glen A. Schofield (@GlenSchofield) June 26, 2019
