Creative minds rarely remain at one place for a long time.

The competitors have also been gaining popularity day-by-day with innovative additions to the Battle Royale formula.

Greene aims to build a culture.

"That's why we have Special Projects...It's challenging, but it's just fun. To get up in the morning, go to work, and dream is something most people dream about," he said.

Game

Which games does the PlayerUnknown play?

Greene is a big fan of Battlefield 1 and wishes to play Celeste and the latest God of War.

Talking about games, he said, "Games like [Inside] really inspire me to think about how I can apply that to a realistic game. I tend not to play too many games in the genre I'm thinking about because I don't want to be unduly influenced."

PUBG

As for PUBG, a remaster of its first map is on the way!
