PUBG creator Brendan Greene leaves Krafton to form new studio

Brendan Greene, better known by his online character PlayerUnknown, today announced that he will be leaving PUBG developer and publisher Krafton to form his own independent studio, PlayerUnknown Productions. Greene has been credited with pioneering the battle royale genre, having created PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds as an Arma mod and then developed it into a full game with South Korean publisher Krafton.

In 2019, Greene moved to Amsterdam to create PlayerUnknown Productions as part of Krafton’s PUBG Corporation, moving away from development on PUBG to work on new projects. Now PlayerUnknown Productions will officially separate from Krafton to become an independent studio, with Krafton holding a minority stake in the studio. The studio’s first project, Prologue, was announced at the 2019 Game Awards, although it is not clear whether the project will be affected by the studio split.
