PlayerUnknown leaves the PUBG company to found a new studio

Brendan ‘PlayerUnknown’ Greene greets Krafton.

Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene left the parent company of PUBG, Krafton, to create a new independent studio, PlayerUnknown Productions.

In 2019 Greene launched PUBG Special Projects, a new division based in Amsterdam that was working on a new project codenamed Prologue.

Greene’s new company is also based in Amsterdam and it looks like it may continue to work on Prologue, with Krafton investing in the new company with a minority stake.

I am very grateful to everyone in PUBG and [Krafton] for giving me a chance and for the opportunities they have given me over the past four years“Greene said in a statement.”Today, I’m thrilled to take the next step on my journey to create the kind of experience I’ve envisioned for years. Again, I am grateful to everyone at Krafton for supporting my plans, and I will have more to reveal more about our project at a later time.. “

A studio website includes Prologue’s previous trailer, suggesting development on the project may continue. The team is also rumored to be exploring ways to enable large-scale open world games.

Krafton recently renamed PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in PUBG: Battlegrounds, diminishing the visibility of the creator now disappeared in his name. At the time, Krafton said the move was to simplify the titles of various PUBG universe games under development.

In addition to PUBG (which continues to do very well), Krafton has many other projects in the pipeline. There’s the upcoming futuristic mobile sequel PUBG: New State, Project Cowboy and The Callisto Protocol from Dead Space creator Glen Schofield.
