PUBG developer Brendan Greene’s upcoming Artemis will come with NFTs, Blockchain, and Metaverse – As the mind behind PUBG, Brendan Greene (a.k.a PLAYERUNKNOWN) is a highly regarded video game developer. He has recently revealed his upcoming new gaming title called Artemis. One of the key takeaways about this game will be that it will feature Web3 technology. Yes, you heard it right. His next game will have NFTs, Blockchain, and the Metaverse inside it.
In the interview that he gave to Hit Points, Brendan said, “[Artemis] will be a platform that we participate in the maintenance of, maybe. But it’s something that anyone can plug into, and everyone can host a bit of themselves.” While Artemis will have an open-world setting, this revelation confirms that it will also add to the blockchain.
I sat down with @nathan_brown last month to chat about the difficulties I faced building a team over the last few years, some of the steps I’ve taken to fix it, and where we are headed next.
It’s a terrific read, so I hope you’ll check it out…https://t.co/9DvM3rU4XI

Greene has been hooked on these Web3 technologies for some time. “I was fascinated with this idea of digital spaces, places where there are no real rules but a set of systems that you can use. That fascinated me and still does. I never considered just walking away,” he said in the interview.
Many consider blockchain to be the future of game development. But the decentralized system has also made many developers skeptical about it. Some games like Minecraft have completely banned NFTs or blockchain.
Greene is not the only game developer who is willing to invest in blockchain, NFTs, and metaverse for their upcoming games. Bandai Namco is working on a metaverse project which will cost nearly $130 million to the studio. Even Epic Games and LEGO have partnered to create a metaverse project for children.
We all have already looked at some scenes from Artemis during The Game Awards 2019 showcase. In the video titled “Prologue”, we saw the highly realistic open world setting in the game. Until Greene shares more details about Artemis and how it will incorporate these Web3 technologies, we all can only speculate about it until then.
Stay tuned to get more such updates from the gaming universe.
