'PUBG' developing a story-based game

'PUBG' developing a story-based game

PUBG Corp. just announced a new independent gaming studio, "Striking Distance" which will develop a narrative experience in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG).

"As a creative, the freedom to explore the PUBG universe has me excited about the possibilities, which we view as beyond battle royale" Schofield said.

But now, those learnings will help me build a AAA team that can explore new designs and concepts at Striking Distance. This makes it an interesting challenge for Striking Distance to convince people to look past the traditional Royale of PUBG to experience more story-driven content. Previously Schofield has been responsible for such games as Dead Space and three Call of Duty titles.

After a falling-out with Activision, Sledgehammer Games co-founder Glen Schofield has found a new home full of chicken dinners.

So, it sounds like Schofield doesn't even have his team assembled yet, which suggests that this narrative-focused PUBG game is still a long ways off.

Martin O'Neill sacked by Nottingham Forest
O'Neill has departed the City Ground after just five months in charge and just days after his assistant Roy Keane left the club. According to the club, he will be assisted at Forest by six new members of staff who will support the first team.


We all know that PUBG is a battle royale gameplay where you need to fight out to remain the last one standing.

The new studio will open with industry veteran Glen Schofield as its CEO as it takes on the newest entry in the PUBG series.

Striking Distance is located in San Ramon, California, United States of America, and is part of PUBG Corp., which will be responsible for launching its games in the market.

Regardless of what precisely the new studio is working on, it appears PUBG fans will have another project to look forward to.
