PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has grown into a pretty massive success ever since it launched in early access back in 2017, so perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising to see that PUBG Corp wants to create more games in the franchise.
It’ll be doing just that by way of a new studio called Striking Distance, the creation of which was announced today.
The new studio’s first task will be creating a narrative game set in the PUBG universe.
The formation of Striking Distance was announced today in a YouTube video featuring a familiar face: Glen Schofield.
Those who enjoy playing shooters probably already know who Schofield is, as his more recent credits include that of executive producer Dead Space.
Of course, he was also one of the co-founders of Call of Duty developer Sledgehammer Games, which assisted in making the original Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3 while leading the charge on Advanced Warfare and WWII.
