Brendan Greene changed gaming with the creation of battle royale, and his PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has sold more than 75 million copies to date. His next plan at PlayerUnknown Productions is to build an ambitious planet-scale virtual world dubbed Artemis. His team hopes to use game design, user-generated content, and machine learning to fill out the vast open world. In the meantime, he is creating Prologue, a 64-square-kilometer single-player space where a player must survive in a big wilderness. We’ll talk about the challenges of building something so ambitious.
