Yes, it was part of the PUBG Universe at one point The creators of Dead Space have a new sci-fi horror game coming later this year, The Callisto Protocol, that was at one point connected to the fiction of PUBG (née PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds). But that’s no longer the case, says Glen Schofield, founder and CEO of developer Striking Distance Studios.
Schofield reportedly told Game Informer that Striking Distance “built in some touchpoints, and you’ll find them throughout the game like Easter eggs and things like that” that appear to connect The Callisto Protocol to PUBG, but it appears that connective tissue won’t be officially canon anymore.
The Callisto Protocol is slated for release on consoles and PC later this year. Schofield’s former colleagues at Electronic Arts will release an official Dead Space game, a remake of the original, in January 2023.
“PUBG is awesome, [and] we will still have little surprises for fans, but [The Callisto Protocol] is its own world, story and universe.”
