Schofield announced that he would be leaving Activision Blizzard by the end of 2018. While at the company, he co-founded Sledgehammer Games and developed the likes of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: WWII. Schofield had left Sledgehammer to take up an executive position at the publisher before his departure.
“I’m proud and honored to announce that I am now part of PUBG Corporation,” Schofield wrote on Twitter earlier today. “Working together, we are building a AAA game studio called Striking Distance in San Ramon, CA.”
“The only thing I can say now is that I’m not working on a sequel to PUBG, but an original narrative in the PUBG universe,” he later clarified.
It’s not yet clear with Schofield and Striking Distance are working on, but we hope the title has the same flavour as Dead Space. What are you hoping for?
We’ll have more on Schofield’s next game as it’s made available.
