When PUBG was released in 2017, it swept the gaming world with its realistic visuals and exciting battle royale gameplay. Despite competition from games like Warzone and Apex Legends, the game has maintained its popularity.
Like Warzone 2’s DMZ mode and Escape from Tarkov, the creators of Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds are currently working on a new project focused on extraction.
According to The Loadout’s reporting, publisher Krafton’s financial report indicates that PUBG Studios is working on a new project under the title “Project Black Budget” and would center on extraction-based gameplay.
In their financial report for the fiscal year ending in November 2022, Krafton referred to this game as a “PvPvE looter shooter.” The new research emphasizes the publisher’s effort to “popularise the extraction shooter genre.”
Pubg’s Developers are Hard At Work on A Whole New Extraction-Mode
The extraction shooter genre features waves of gameplay in which surviving is just as important as making progress. In these games, you must watch out for your safety while completing missions to build up your collection of stolen goods and commodities for sale on the black market.
PUBG Corporation has been keeping a close eye on the difficulties that DMZ has had on its journey into orbit and is preparing for its launch.
The article makes it obvious that this next game would be modeled after the gameplay of PUBG and that the developers are mulling over the possibility of launching it on personal computers, mobile devices, and consoles. As of this writing, very little further information has been disclosed.
Although no concept art is included, the PUBG Studios logo can be seen in the same location as the phrase “Project Black Budget.” Therefore, the creators of PUBG will be working on it, and they will probably attempt to compete with Tarkov and DMZ.
The source did not include any other details, but, considering the growing popularity of extraction-based modes, it should not be surprising to see battle-royale games adapting to the new experience.
Krafton said that it is “Challenging ourselves to promote the extraction shooter genre” and that it is focusing on “satisfying gunplay that provides unusual and thrilling encounters.” These expectations for the mode have already been set at a high level.
As a result, we may anticipate that the mode will adhere to the Tarkov and DMZ aesthetics, and the objective for players would be to retrieve the treasure.
At the time of writing, PUBG was still attracting more than 320,000 players on Steam; thus, it is reasonable to assume that many of these players will try out the new game and see what the new experience has to offer them.
Like a few years ago, when every developer produced a battle royale game, the extraction shooter genre seemed to dominate the online gaming market. Tarkov initially made this style famous, and now Call of Duty puts its spin on it with DMZ.
As the release of PUBG New State was over a year ago, and plans for a genuine PUBG 2 sequel have been scrapped, Project Black Budget seems to be the next brand-new project from PUBG Studios.
