We should get our hands on at least one of them by 2022.

The PUBG Universe

During The Game Awards 2020, a new survival horror game The Callisto Protocol was revealed to be part of the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in-game universe. The sci-fi horror, made by former Dead Space developers, is set 300 years into the future of the battle royale.

This won't be the only PUBG spinoff, as the parent company of developer and publisher PUBG Corp is planning several games that will be somehow related to the multiplayer shooter in some way, shape or form.

PUBG is expanding with more games

According to comments from someone in Bluehole's parent company, one of these games will have a release between now and 2022.

Another PUBG-related game

In an interview with Bloomberg, Krafton CEO Kim Chang-han said that a “PUBG-related” game would release by “next year”. Krafton is the corporation that oversees Bluehole, PUBG Corp, and Striking Distance, the latter of which is handling The Callisto Protocol.

No further details are mentioned, and what form this game takes is anyone's guess right now. The Callisto Protocol is set to be narrative-focused and single-player, like Dead Space, meaning whatever this other game is could be single-player or multiplayer, and any genre, though expect it on consoles and PC.

The Chang-han profile mentions that Krafton is going all in on PUBG, making a webtoon and an animated series, among other videogame plans like launching another, unrelated battle royale on mobile.

PUBG and PUBG Mobile

For PUBG itself, both the regular game and PUBG mobile are still going strong. PUBG started Season 10 last December, bringing in Haven, a tiny map measuring 1km-by-1km.

PUBG Mobile Season 17 has just begun, depending on your timezone, so you'll find a wealth of new cosmetic rewards when you next parachute in.
