Glen Schofield, a developer and studio chief who had a big hand in the creation of Dead Space at Visceral, and who then worked on the Call of Duty franchise at Sledgehammer (a studio that he co-founded), has been unveiled as the new CEO of Striking Distance.
The studio, which is to be based in San Ramon in California, is part of the Bluehole family, and the team has been set up to produce a new story-driven experience based in the PUBG universe.
"Throughout my career, I've had a lot of opportunities to make some remarkable games that tell incredible stories, and each of them has meant something special to me," Schofield wrote. "But now, those learnings will help me build a AAA team that can explore new designs and concepts at Striking Distance."
"As a creative, the freedom to explore the PUBG universe has me excited about the possibilities, which I view as beyond the battle royale genre," he added. "Today represents a special moment for me and I'm so thankful to be taking this journey with the team at PUBG Corporation."
