Brendan Greene, otherwise known as PlayerUnknown, has left the PUBG company. Greene initially helped start up the PUBG studio with the help of parent company Krafton, before leaving the battle-royale hit to form a second studio known as PUBG Special Projects. Now, Greene will be forming his own independent studio.
After forming the PUBG Special Projects studio in Amsterdam, Greene began working on a mysterious game currently known as ‘Prologue', which seemed to be a horror title set in the PUBG universe. That game isn't finished just yet, and it is currently unknown if development will continue.
Greene's new studio is called PlayerUnknown Productions and it is also based in Amsterdam, Krafton has also acquired a minority stake in the studio to help get things started up. Based on Greene's statement, it is possible that Prologue will continue development under PlayerUnknown Productions:
“I'm so very grateful to everyone at PUBG and Krafton for taking a chance on me and for the opportunities they afforded me over the past four years. Today, I'm excited to take the next step on my journey to create the kind of experience I've envisaged for years. Again, I'm thankful for everyone at Krafton for supporting my plans, and I'll have more to reveal more about our project at a later date.”
Aside from Prologue, there is another PUBG spin-off title in the works under Dead Space creator, Glen Schofield, as well as a new mobile PUBG game called PUBG: New State.

KitGuru Says: While PUBG doesn't make headlines as much as it used to, there is no denying that the game left a lasting impact on the industry and the IP still remains huge to this day. It will be interesting to see what Greene does next and whether or not his next project will tie into the PUBG universe.
