A new Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is in the works, according to publisher Bluehole, and the untitled game will be developed by a new studio called Striking Distance. Headed by ex-Call of Duty and Dead Space developer Glen Schofield, the Striking Distance title is currently still in its infancy, with PUBG Corp stating the game is an “original narrative experience within the PUBG universe.”

The game is speculated to not be a battle royale, with Schofield stating “As a creative, the freedom to explore the PUBG universe has me excited about the possibilities, which I view as beyond the battle royale genre.”

Although the title won’t be a sequel, it’ll come off the back of one of the most influential games of all time in PUBG, as it has gone to elevate the battle royale genre and create sensations like Fortnite and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

In other entertainment news, there’s a new One Punch Man game in the works.
