Krafton is a large holding company that incorporates a growing studio, the original (and best known) of which is Bluehole (the studio behind). PUBG (((PlayerUnknown Battlefield).In fact, despite founding Krafton about three years ago and raising a lot of money, the official website is still bluehole.net..

Krafton is using some of its resources to grow a group of development studios and is currently adding Unknown Worlds to the mix.Studios are best known for their excellence Subnautica When Subnautica: Below zeroTwo titles that have been enjoyed relatively recently with excellent switch ports.

Unknown Worlds “acts as an independent game development studio wholly owned by KRAFTON,” while preserving its existing leadership. In the press release, Unknown Worlds CEO Charlie Cleveland is quoted as follows:

It quickly became clear how closely Unknown Worlds and KRAFTON worked together in the way we think about games and game development. Both Subnautica and PUBG started humbly and evolved successfully through constant iteration and feedback. We want to bring new games to the world stage. And with KRAFTON, we have taken a big step. We are really looking forward to our future together.

The studio is also working on a “game that defines a new genre” that will enter Early Access next year.

It’s been a busy year in terms of acquiring a game studio, so I’ll add it to the list again this year.
