PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or PUBG, as it is popularly called, is one of the most famous mobile games that are being played nowadays and the youngsters are in love with it. Ever wondered why this game has a weird name? Well, it’s because this is someone’s gamer tag.
The person who is responsible for the creation of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or PUBG is 37-year-old Brendan Greene, he has worked as a photographer and web developer in brazil for a short time before returning to his country.
In 2013, Brendan fell in love with DayZ which was a mod of open-world military simulator ‘Arma 2’ and he started working for creating a mod of his own for DayZ. This mod by Brendan was inspired by ‘Battle Royale’ which was a Japanese movie and he replaced the zombies with humans, against whom a player has to survive.
Brendan learned to code and created one of the early versions of PUBG which gained popularity. In 2015, Brendan was free and was contacted by South Korean studio Bluehole Ginno games. He became their creative director and work started for a new game in 2016.
The South Korean studio wanted to take advantage of the fact that the Battle Royale genre was not much popular in the country at that time, so they wanted to be the first to come up with it. PUBG was released back in 2017 and to this current day, it has been growing immensely and gaining more popularity day by day.
So it’s been almost three years the game we all love was first officially released.
