'I would love to add a single player campaign to the game' says PUBG creator

Brendan Greene, the man responsible for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, hosted a Reddit AMA earlier today. Within, he discussed the possibility of a single player campaign, new vehicles for the game's new and incoming map, and a tribute to '90s comedy show Father Ted.

With comments running into the thousands, Greene was inundated with questions but did manage to hit a number of interesting issues—not least adding solo play to the battle royale murder simulator. 

"I would love to add a single player campaign to the game," says Greene when asked of the features he'd love to see added to the game. "I think the island we have could be a great location for an interesting story, but unfortunately we just don't have the time or the resources for this at the moment!"

What Greene and his Bluehole team does appear to have time for, however, is introducing new vehicles to the game's next map. Despite remaining tight-lipped on what they might be, he said: "We have new vehicles planned for the new map," says Greene. "As to what they are, you'll just have to wait and see."

Another feature heading to PUBG is a division and/or placement system, akin to the likes of CS:GO, League of Legends, and the similarly structured H1Z1. "We do have plans to add systems like this," explains Greene. "We also want to add a character leveling system and weapon skill systems (that doesn't affect game-play) and other progression systems. We'll have more info on these once we get a chance to fully plan them out."

Elsewhere, Greene said he and his team have "no plans" to introduce text chat any time soon, and that he's still getting used "every word [he says] publicly" being reported on, which in many ways underscores PUBG's meteoric success.  

And from the sublime to the ridiculous: an homage to '90s comedy show Father Ted might be on the cards. 

When asked if any subtle Irish references are planned down the line, Father Ted, for example, Greene said: "I don't think anyone at home knew that the game-mode was created by an Irishman, and as a result I was never contacted by any local companies. I also didn't have the experience to set up a studio myself so never really considered it. A little nod to Ted? I already have a plan for this, so stay tuned."

Update: Greene reaffirmed on Twitter that while he may "love" the idea, as he stated, there are no present plans to add a single-player campaign.

I would like to see a single-player campaign in this game, let's hope that they will find some time for that in the future.

Thank you for sharing this.


Because I suck so much at Multiplayer I would love to see a campaign.



With the money they've made it shouldn't be an issue of manpower, but even though they say later I hope they don't get distracted from focusing on the original game.  Not that it isn't playable now.


I think that's amazing!


This is great news. New cars are a significant upgrade. In the first case, I would like to see the development of weapons in a qualitative way. I need grenades that are shot with a gun so that I can shoot a firearm without changing the slot. That's what I mean - see the photo. It would be very cool!
Hurry would have introduced a new card - I'm really looking forward to it!


And if he does, I would definitely buy the game ! :)



Single Player campaign would be awesome.

Let's see what the future holds ...



It would be a great additon to the game, but they have so many things to do... Maybe in 5 years or never.


This game has a lot of players already, but the presence of a campaign might be another good trait. Maybe his simple idea will be a real one, just as his previous idea about this game is being a real game.


This is good news because I prefer single play.
