Portal Bloomberg held an interview with Kim Chang-Han, the CEO of Krafton – the holding company that oversees such studios as PUBG Corporation, Bluehole and Striking Distance. According to the interview, the company does not wish to “stay as a one-hit wonder” and looks for ways to utilize the intellectual property of PUBG and make that into an even bigger franchise.
A part of that ambitious plan is the release of new games related to the IP:
- A new mobile Battle Royale title that will be based on PUBG, coming later this year
- PUBG-related PC and console game coming in 2022
- A Survival/Horror game coming in 2022 that will “depict the PUBG universe three centuries into the future”
The third game on the list is The Callisto Protocol, a Survival/Horror from Striking Distance announced during The Game Awards 2020.
The events of the game take place on Jupiter’s moon Callisto in 2120. The game aims to challenge players to escape the maximum-security Black Iron Prison and uncover its terrifying secrets and promises a blend of horror, action, and immersive storytelling that aims to set a new bar for horror in interactive entertainment.
In an interview with GamesRadar, Glen Schofield clarified that The Callisto Protocol and PUBG are joined more by lore than by story and that the way the two are connected will not be really deep.
