Some exciting news for PUBG as the primary company PUBG Corp. has merged this week with parent company Krafton Inc. The information isn’t unexpected as it looked like this might be how things go for about a year or so, but actually, the timing came a bit out of the blue.
Krafton announced that PUBG Corporation, as a subsidiary, has completely merged into their company under its independent studio system and will now be focussing strictly on development under its brand new name, PUBG Studio.
This falls in line with an earlier announcement that their publishing and support teams have integrated into Krafton. This brand new studio system includes a total of four studios with Bluehole Studio, Striking Distance Studios, and RisingWings.
You can read more details and information about how this will be shaking out below, as outlined very well by Krafton, as we wait to see how this will all shake out for content, esports, and the employees’ future.
PUBG Studio will be continuing to provide global support for PUBG and PUBG Mobile in selected countries. The studio will be continuing to seek ways to develop and even expand the PUBG IP in various fields, including its entertainment and esports business.
