Dead Space’s creator will reveal his PUBG narrative game this week
The Game Awards is expected to include 12-15 brand new game announcements
Dead Space creator Glen Schofield will announce a new story-based PUBG title at The Game Awards this week.
The former Sledgehammer and Visceral general manager was appointed as CEO of a new PUBG Corporation development studio called Striking Distance in 2019.
At the time, he said PUBG Corporation was keen to expand the series beyond battle royale and that he was planning to craft “an original narrative experience in the PUBG universe”.
Schofield has been building Striking Distance from the ground up and it now has over 100 employees, including former Call of Duty and Dead Space developers.
Game Awards producer Geoff Keighley confirmed on Tuesday that Striking Distance’s debut title will be one of “12-15” brand new games announced at this week’s event.
“I think there are a good dozen+ games that will be announced/revealed at the show for the first time,” Keighley said during a recent Reddit AMA.
Microsoft will also reportedly make an announcement at the Game Awards 2020, which will be streamed live on December 10 from 3.30pm PT/6.30pm ET/11.30pm GMT.
