Playerunknown's new title Prologue is not a PUBG sequel

PlayerUnknown’s new title Prologue will not be a sequel to PUBG.

In an interview with Forbes, Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds creator Brendan Greene discussed his newly announced game Prologue.

“This is the first step in the journey for me,” said Greene.

“We set up the studio and founded it with the goal of experimenting with new technology. Now we’re taking that first step towards building new technologies, and Prologue is the first step into the new world for us. I wanted the chance to deliver something new on a global scale.”

“I’ve got some pretty big dreams about what I want to achieve, that I’m not quite ready to achieve. It will require some new tech.”

The game and its trailer were revealed at The Game Awards 2019, very little was given away as to what the game is about. Greene has claimed to be in a good place with a good opportunity.

“It's so much responsibility, I really don't want to mess this up,” said Greene.

“But these opportunities don't come along very often, you don't get a chance to launch a global IP every day. “

Greene added: “One of my dreams is to create worlds at scale. Hundreds of kilometres by hundreds of kilometres, with thousands of people, and these are hugely difficult problems to solve”.

On its website, Prologue is described as “an exploration of new technologies and gameplay. Our aim with this game is to give players unique and memorable experiences, each and every time they play.”
