'PlayerUnknown' Brendan Greene Has Left PUBG Developer Krafton to Form a New Studio

Richard Walker

Brendan ‘PlayerUnknown’ Greene, creator of battle royale game PUBG, has departed PUBG Battlegrounds custodians Krafton, to form his own new independent studio. It seems that Greene's new project, titled ‘Prologue’, will continue without him, although Krafton will apparently hold a minority stake in Greene's new Amsterdam-based studio.

“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," Greene said in a statement (reported by GamesBeat). "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."

In March of 2019, Greene announced that he was moving away from work on PUBG to head up a division at Krafton's PUBG Corp, called ‘PUBG Special Projects’. This involved a new project known as Prologue, which is still listed on the company's website. No doubt we'll find out more about the status of that game, and Greene's first project with his new studio, soon.
