PUBG Corporation has revealed that the new unit will work on an “original narrative experience within the PUBG universe. A brand new studio called Striking Distance will helm the game which is still untitled. The studio has appointed the ex-Call of Duty and Dead Space developer Glen Schofield as its CEO.
“As a creative, the freedom to explore the PUBG universe has me excited about the possibilities, which I view as beyond the battle royale genre”, Schofield had said. However, there are rumors that the new narrative based game will be set inside the PUBG world.
It was inevitable for PUBG to look for a narrative based alternative as its arch-rival Fortnite also has a story-driven mode. The concept of a narrative based game isn’t new though. Games like Battlefield, Call of Duty and Dead Space have been using story-driven gameplay for many years now.
