Krafton Inc recently came out with some major announcements for PUBG and the future of the franchise. It was revealed that four new games are coming from the developers, and all of them will be related to the PUBG Universe.
Popular data miner @PlayerIGN uploaded a video to YouTube highlighting all the major changes Krafton Inc are making. He mentions that this new direction for the PUBG Universe will be more than just an ordinary expansion.
PUBG's influence over popular culture is going beyond the realms of gaming, as the data miner confirmed that a feature film, a comic book, and a PUBG TV series are on their way.
The community already knows about PUBG New State coming out in October 2021. So our focus here will be on the other new PUBG games.
PUBG New State
PUBG New State mobile got all the appreciation it deserved during the testing phase. Now, the game is set to come out later this year around October.
PUBG New State is a battle royale game set in the year 2051. However, New State will just be the start of a universe that Krafton is building around PUBG.
The Callisto Protocol
The Callisto Protocol is going to be a survival horror game, based on the PUBG Universe. It is undoubtedly the most anticipated game of the lot and is scheduled to come out in 2022.
An official trailer was released for The Callisto Protocol and it featured some of the most gruesome cinematics one can imagine.
From the looks of it, the game will be set 300 years after the original PUBG series. It will be on Callisto, one of the moons of Jupiter. This is where symbiotic aliens are present.
The story-driven third-person shooter is being developed by Striking Distance in partnership with Krafton. The Callisto Protocol will be available for both PC and Console.
Data miner @PlayerIGN mentions that the developers spoke about PUBG's development briefly before moving on to other topics.
However, they gave the audience a timeline by which they can expect the new games. PUBG Cowboy might come out sometime around 2023.
PUBG Cowboy is scheduled to come out after The Callisto Protocol (2022). The developers only revealed that it will be a new "survival game". Besides that, not much was divulged about PUBG Cowboy.
Titan is the fourth and final game listed by Krafton. It is scheduled to come out in 2024 and will be a battle royale game like PUBG. Titan will also be developed by Striking Distance in partnership with Krafton.
Titan will be a new PUBG Universe Battle Royale game led by Glen Schofield. Data miner @PlayerIGN mentions that both Titan and Callisto Protocol will have the same developers.
This essentially means that Titan might be a battle royale game set in outer space.
The working theory is that The Callisto Protocol will reveal more about Titan. It will continue the timeline of the PUBG Universe while incorporating events that happened 300 years ago.
The current storyline of the PUBG Universe will have a major expansion in the next few years. Hopefully, fans will find all the realistic essence PUBG is popular for in the upcoming games.
