We knew the world of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS expanding its universe by various means, including The Callisto Protocol. It will also tackle other media, starting with the smallest notch.

KRAFTON and Adi Shankar signed an agreement to create an animation project based on PUBG. PUBG Corporation’s parent company Bluehole, RisingWings, Striking Distance and Deamnotion let it be known through the voice of its CEO, Chang-Han Kim, that they are excited to bring the world of PUBG to life in this way:
In addition to the continued development of exciting new content in the PUBG game, our partnership with Adi Shankar represents a step in our broader strategy of expanding the PUBG universe into a multimedia franchise. We are excited to be working with Adi Shankar to explore and realize a world that brings the game to life for our fans. We look forward to sharing more information about this animation project in the near future.
After the very violent short film Ground Zero, we can speak of a real rapprochement with Hollywood. Geek standard, Adi Shankar has on his CV the production of Dredd, some short films not prickly and very dark like The Punisher: Dirty Laundry and Power rangers, but also, and closer to us, that of the Netflix animation series Castlevania, whose reputation is over.
His desire to bring his piece to the building seems sincere:
As a player, I have been crushing the competition in the Battlegrounds since PUBG released in 2017. I am grateful to KRAFTON for their trust in me to execute my vision as a filmmaker and I am can’t wait to take this trip together. For me, this animation project represents a new step in the evolution of the relationship between the games industry and Hollywood. I can’t wait to reveal to the world what it is like to win a chicken dinner.
What to wonder about the way in which this series will unfold which, for the moment, has no name, no pitch, or nothing. At least we know that in the end there will only be one left.
