PUBG, the creators of a popular battle royale game, is developing a brand-new extraction-based shooter that will compete with Escape from Tarkov and Warzone 2's DMZ mode.

With its authentic graphics and battle royale format, PUBG won back trust among gamers in 2017 and continues to be a popular title today.

The developers of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds have set their sights on a brand-new project that involves extraction, comparable to Warzone 2's DMZ mode and Escape from Tarkov.

According to a Krafton earnings report from The Loadout, PUBG Studios will be working on a new project called 'Project Black Budget,' which will focus on extraction-based gameplay.

Krafton referred to this title as a "PvPvE looter shooter" in a November 2022 earnings report. Now, the publisher states that the publisher wants to "popularize the extraction shooter genre."

The report states that this new game will be based on the PUBG experience and that they may release it on PC, mobile, and consoles. At the time of writing, nothing more was revealed.

Although there is no concept art, the PUBG Studios logo appears in the section where the developers refer to Project Black Budget. The PUBG developers will be working on it and will most likely compete with Tarkov and DMZ.

Krafton promises that players will experience "an ever-changing PvPvE open-world and satisfying gunplay that offers unexpected and exciting experiences." We'll update this article as more information about this title becomes available.
