CALIFORNIA – Recently, an animated series based on the video game, Castlevania, officially ended with its fourth season. Although it is rumored that a sequel and spin-off will appear, the creator, Adi Shankar, admitted that he had been hooked by Krafton Inc. in a project that will adapt the video game Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds.

Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds aka PUBG is a battle royale game that pits a hundred players in an arena where they have to kill each other and be the only player left.

In this arena, a circle of safe zones will appear and shrink as the game progresses; narrowing the range of the players and urging them to shoot each other.

Adi Shankar himself is a veteran Hollywood director and producer. He is best known for several of his major films, including The Gray, starring Liam Neeson and Killing Them Softly, starring Brad Pitt.

“I’ve often been a winner in PUBG games since its release in 2017,” said Adi, quoted from VG247, Wednesday (21/7). “So I’m honored to have been invited by Krafton to work on an adaptation of a game I love. I can’t wait to share my vision and go on this adventure together.”

This animation project is one of the PUBG franchise expansions beyond the world of video games. Previously, PUBG had also released a live-action short film titled Ground Zero and a documentary series titled Mysteries Unknown: Birth of the Battlegrounds.

“In order to develop new content in the PUBG game, we also want to expand our property into a multimedia franchise,” said CH Kim, CEO of Krafton Inc. “We really want Adi Shankar to explore and realize our in-game world for fans. Hopefully we can share more things next time,” he concluded.
