Today Glen Schofield announced the opening of a new studio called Striking Distance. The studio will be in charge of development of a new story-driven game in the PUBG universe.
For people unaware of Glen Schofield’s work, rest assured the game will be in good hands.
No timelines or additional details were shared as of yet.
“The studio will ‘create an original narrative experience within the PUBG universe,’ whatever that may be… In any case, it seems the new studio will be in good hands, as industry veteran Glen Schofield is taking the helm… As Vice President and General Manager at Visceral Games, and later a co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, he’s worked on some major titles such as Dead Space and Call of Duty. In his introductory video, Schofield said he’s looking forward to ‘the freedom to explore the PUBG universe’ and the opportunities that offers, ‘which we view as beyond battle royale’… Striking Distance is being built from the ground up and will be based in… California.”
Glen is one of our favorite people in the industry thanks to his work on Dead Space and co-founding Sledgehammer. It will be interesting to see what this game looks like when more details are shared on the game.
