PUBG Creator Brendan Greene Part Ways With Krafton, Focusing On Own Game Studio

Major news broke today as Brendan Greene, A.K.A. PlayerUnknown and creator of PUBG, made it official that he's now leaving Krafton.

Releasing a new statement, Greene confirmed:

"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, 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."

But even his own studio, PlayerUnknown Productions, will be separated from PUBG Corporation - which is under Krafton - though they'll still have a minority stake in it.

Move To Amsterdam

Back in 2019, Greene and his team went to Amsterdam to set up PlayerUnknown Productions under PUBG Corporation. But now, after two years since they created it, they'll be officially parting ways to establish themselves as an independent studio, working on new projects outside PUBG.

One of those is titled ‘Prologue’ which was revealed in The Game Awards 2019. Despite this, it's unclear if there will be some changes following their split from PUBG Corporation. Follow us for more PUBG news and updates.
