One of the most curious things that emerged from the reveal of The Callisto Protocol was the claim that it would be apart of the PUBG universe, despite a clear and stark difference in tone and concept.
This morning on Twitter, the game’s lead Glen Schofield, the mind responsible for the Dead Space series serving as a big inspiration for the upcoming horror title, went on to confirm that while this was the case at one point, The Callisto Protocol is now very much its own thing.
FYI @CallistoTheGame is its own story and world. It no longer takes place in the PUBG Universe. It was originally part of the PUBG timeline, but grew into its own world. PUBG is awesome, &we will still have little surprises for fans, but TCP is its own world, story and universe.
Schofield did say the game would still contain little surprises for fans of PUBG but that The Callisto Protocol very much is its own story and world, which is encouraging for horror fans hoping for something to carry the genre forward.
