The news was revealed as part of a Bloomberg interview with Kim Chang-Han, the CEO of Krafton. Krafton is the holding company that oversees a number of development studios including PUBG Studio and Striking Distance, the team working on The Callisto Protocol.
Chang-Han told Bloomberg about his desire to “not stay as a one-hit wonder,” noting that there are plans to release two new PUBG games in 2021 and 2022. The game coming this year is reportedly a “new battle royale mobile title” set within the game’s universe. 2022 will then see the launch of “another PUBG-related PC and console game” as well as the previously announced survival horror game The Callisto Protocol, which is being helmed by Dead Space alum Glen Schofield.
The Callisto Protocol was revealed during The Game Awards 2020, and many were shocked to learn that the survival horror game was set in the PUBG universe in the hours following its announcement. If anything, this goes to show that we shouldn’t pigeonhole these upcoming PUBG games. We could be getting a PUBG kart racing game, for all we know.
For more on The Callisto Protocol, check out our interview with Glen Schofield, who told us how he wants to make “the scariest game on next-gen platforms”. In other PUBG news, the game recently made it into Steam’s Top Sellers category for 2020.
