‘PUBG’ Spinoff ‘Project Cowboy’ Takes Players To The Wild West

‘PUBG’ Spinoff ‘Project Cowboy’ Takes Players To The Wild West

Krafton Inc has announced Project Cowboy, which will be the third spinoff title revealed to take place in the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds universe.


The news comes from Bloter, a South Korean outlet, but the information was translated by PUBG leaker PlayerIGN. Project Cowboy is a codename for the upcoming game but I think they shouldn't change it, because it's comical yet ticks all of the boxes. The game appears to be inspired by the community's own creation of a popular western-themed custom game that restricts players to only using pistols and Win94s and set in Miramar for that desert backdrop. Krafton was clear in its statement to the outlet that Project Cowboy is "a new IP game for Battlegrounds," and the title will be a priority for its teams, owing to the job openings that have cropped up at the studio.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is one of the biggest games on the planet, and it gained a lot of traction in its battle royale mode on Twitch. Check out a compilation of livestream wins and fails below.



Krafton explicated that there has been a "longing for this genre" within PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds so it checks out that it would corner this opportunity before players look elsewhere. Not only is there Project Cowboy on the way, there's also the stomach-churning horror The Callisto Protocol, which was announced during The Game Awards. Glen Schofield, the co-creator of Dead Space, is on board and assured players that it will be "the most terrifying game of all time. However, there is a major difference from the original game to be found, even though it is part of the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds universe.

"There's a story that we want to tell, and the best way we could tell it was being a single-player game," said Schofield. "Sometimes when you get into co-op, you don't follow directions and you're not following the story as well, and not only that, we wanted this to be-we wanted you to be alone. That's what makes this really scary."


Additionally, PUBG: New State has seen over 10 million gamers sign up to play its alpha test which is happening soon. And, there's Vertical, appearing to be a sci-fi shooter with plenty of puzzles for players to crack. Intriguing stuff, so we'll keep you in the loop when we know more.
