  • KRAFTON’s website recently posted job listings for PUBG Madison, hinting at an upcoming AAA shooter IP.
  • The Senior Level Designer position emphasises a strong knowledge of shooters, indicating the new IP will feature PvPvE elements like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG).
  • Qualifications include experience with Unreal Engine, suggesting the video game may be developed using Unreal Engine 5.
  • Responsibilities mention directing level design for expansive maps, resembling PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ (PUBG) setup.
  • Another job listing for Senior Technical Animator suggests the video game will feature diverse rigs and assets, including characters, weapons, creatures, vehicles, and props.

In November 2023, KRAFTON, the developer of the renowned battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), disclosed the ongoing development of their upcoming title, Black Budget, slated for release in the latter half of the current year, as affirmed in the company’s 3Q 2023 Earnings Results.

Although Black Budget serves as a spin-off to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), adopting an “everchanging PvPvE open world,” indications suggest that the company is concurrently engaged in another project. Recent job postings disclose that PUBG Madison is actively developing a new AAA shooter IP akin to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), employing Unreal Engine 5.

Today, we encountered a few freshly posted job listings on the KRAFTON website pertaining to PUBG Madison. Among them is the Senior Level Designer position, with its description stating, “And that’s only the beginning: PUBG Madison is developing an exciting new IP that aims to push the shooter genre forward.”

The job listing requires a “strong knowledge of shooters, both PVP and PVE.” This suggests that the upcoming franchise not only belongs to the shooter genre but also shares PvPvE elements with the company’s previous projects, hinting at resemblances to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG).
