AMSTERDAM – DECEMBER 13, 2019 – PLAYERUNKNOWN PRODUCTIONS, a new studio from PUBG Corporation, today announced prologue, an original IP developed by Brendan Greene and a team of game developers and researchers based in Amsterdam, NL. The teaser for prologue, which was just unveiled at The Game Awards 2019, can be viewed here.

Prior to leading PLAYERUNKNOWN PRODUCTIONS, Greene helped create the massively popular Battle Royale genre and served as the Creative Director for PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG).

“Our studio was founded with the goal of exploring, experimenting, and creating new technologies and gameplay experiences,” said Brendan Greene. “With prologue, we are taking our first steps toward building new technologies and interactions that will help develop my ideas into reality.”

“I have been given a once in a lifetime chance to deliver something new on a global stage. Being given a platform to build a brand-new experience outside of the Battle Royale genre is an amazing gift, and one I don’t want to squander,” added Greene. “prologue is an exploration into new technologies and gameplay. Our aim with this game is to give players unique and memorable experiences, each and every time they play.
