Bluehole, Inc. Announces The Formation Of PUBG Corp. For Playerunknown's Battlegrounds

Bluehole, Inc. Announces The Formation Of PUBG Corp. For Playerunknown's Battlegrounds”

Today developer Blue Hole announced that a new company called PUBG Corp is being spun off to focus entirely on the game's development.

Now that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a smash hit, its developer Bluehole Inc. Woonghee Cho, who previously served as the CEO of Maui Games and as Head of Business Development for Neowiz, will focus on accelerating overall business development and managing global operations for PUBG.

It's been six months since PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds released on Early Access, but man, what a six months it has been.

Mr Kim was quoted as saying that the PUBG Corp. would ensure the required operational efficiency to support the game. The company says it will launch a "variety of new businesses including esports and prepare for PUBG to become a global IP franchise".

The "Seoul" listing of the PUBG Corporation logo insists on its South Korean office, with a U.S. office already set up in Madison, Wisconsin and future branches in Japan and Europe.

PUBG recently broke the record for concurrent users on Steam, and according to Bluehole it has sold over 13 million copies. The battle royale game has popularized the genre to the point where we're seeing similar games pop up now. With the team behind the game now their own company, one must wonder what other projects they may be cooking up-certainly not a PUBG sequel this early on, but for sure some new content (maps, weapons) and game modes. PUBG creator Brendan Greene admitted that the development team literally can't keep up with its massively growing playerbase, and if it weren't for Microsoft's help, the game probably wouldn't come to Xbox for quite some time.
