Brendan Greene, known as the creator of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, is leaving the position of the director of development and is joining a new project of PUBG Corp. called PUBG Special Projects.
In his announcement, Brendan stated:
“The past five years of my life has been all about battle royale. From the early days working on a mod to getting the chance to create my vision for a battle royale title, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.”
“It’s been an incredible journey and our game has reached heights I never thought possible. Seeing the game grow into what it is today has been a dream come true and I can’t thank our fans and the incredible team at PUBG Corporation enough.”
Due to Brendan’s transition to the new division, he will move from the PUBG Corp. studio in Seoul, South Korea, to Amsterdam, where he plans to build “an entirely new division to focus on research and game development.”
In his statement he also added:
"We are tasked with exploring, experimenting, and creating new technologies, tools, pipelines, and gameplay; but for me, it is more than that. Together with a team of game developers and researchers, we will explore new possibilities of interaction and connection within the game space."
“I've spent the past two years on the road meeting so many of you at conventions and other industry events, which has been a fantastic experience, but I missed having a place to call home and a room to play games.”
After spending five years creating and perfecting PUBG, which got immensely popular since its release in 2017, and paving the way for other successful battle royale games, we can all agree Brendan Greene definitely deserves a little time to himself.
