If you know PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, then you probably know PlayerUnknown himself, Brendan Greene. He’s the creator of the game, with PUBG Corporation being the studio behind the game, with the studio being owned by Krafton. Though it looks like Green has started his own studio, called PlayerUnknown Productions.
PC Gamer reports that Greene started the new studio to “create the kind of experience I’ve envisaged for years”. The studio itself is “exploring the systems needed to enable massive scale within open world games”. That may be a hint as to what PlayerUnknown Productions is working on, but needless to say it will be a very long while before we see anything being announced.
According to the report, Greene left PUBG Corp recently, when the studio decided to change the name of the game to PUBG: Battlegrounds. But it’s worth noting that Krafton, the aforementioned owner of PUBG Corp, owns a minority stake in PlayerUnknown Productions.
Even with the new studio, it’s a little hard to imagine Greene doing something that’s not related to the battle royale genre. Even before PUBG was a thing, Greene worked with the official H1Z1 mode, and the DayZ mod of Arma 2 back in the day.
