PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is a battle royale game focused on scavenging weapons and using stealth or other tactics to be the last person alive. While the player count has dropped in recent months, it's still one of the most popular experiences out there.
Usually, battle royale games don't have a narrative, but developer PUBG Corp. wants to change that. According to a report by Eurogamer, there's a narrative PUBG game in the works. The outlet said the following.
It doesn't seem like the upcoming title will be a multiplayer battle royale game. However, only time will tell. The PUBG universe hasn't been defined in a meaningful way before, so this new team has the chance to radically alter the franchise. With that said, it's unclear what the plot of such a game could be.
