Corp. has set-up a whole new development studio called Striking Distance, to create a narrative experience in the PUBG universe.
Fortnite might have all the mindshare, particularly in the West, but as the game which popularised battle royale PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds (aka PUBG) is far from yesterdays news.
As a report earlier today revealed the game sold 4.7 million copies last year and is huge on mobile, particularly in China.
But rather than rely on just the original game a new studio called Striking Distance has just been formed to create an original narrative experience within the PUBG universe.
Since PUBG doesnt really have a plot theres no clue what kind of stories they may be (although were guessing not romantic comedies) but what has been announced is that the new studio is being headed up by Dead Space and Call Of Duty veteran Glen Schofield.
The video above offers little in the way of solid information but Schofield talks about having the freedom to explore the PUBG universe and moving beyond just battle royale.
Schofield has been in the games industry since the early 90s but made his name as one of the co-creators of Dead Space at EA before becoming a co-founder of Sledgehammer Studios, where he worked on Modern Warfare 3, Advanced Warfare, and WWII.
