PUBG Creator Brendan ‘Playerunknown’ Greene Reveals What He Wants to Do Next
Currently one of the hottest games on Steam, Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has exploded in popularity since it entered Steam’s early access program earlier this year. Constantly evolving and improving, PUBG is currently on track to becoming the ultimate battle royale, which begs the question – what is creator Brendan ‘Playerunknown’ Greene going to do next? In a recent interview, Greene reveals that he has his sights set on the survival genre.
I’ve wanted to make a survival game. I mean, I love DayZ and I love DayZ standalone, but I have my own idea for a survival game, and I just want to make a game I want to play. It’s why I started with battle royale. I’m hoping my next is a game that other people will want to play as well. You know, because of the success for [PUBG], no pressure for it to be a success or anything.”
This doesn’t necessarily mean that Mr. Playerunknown is stepping away from Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds though. In the same interview, Greene revealed that he views PUBG as an evolving platform rather than just a one-off. “We’re not making a game, we’re creating this as a service, so this is something we hope to improve upon and keep building upon over the next five, ten years,” he said. “This game to us is not just a game that we’re going to push out a full launch and stop working on. We want to go back to it in maybe a year’s time and look at doing like Erangel 2.0 with everything we’ve learned over the past year and just redoing the whole island to make it that little bit better and more polished.”

Developer Bluehole is currently working on two new maps for the game, both of which are still a few months out. Just today, Playerunknown announced that the first-person shooter mode is now available across all of PUBG‘s normal game modes, which means full and partial squads can now queue up for fps mode on its own dedicated servers. It is currently available for PC with an Xbox One version coming later this year and an enhanced version coming to the Xbox One X at a later date.
