Let's be honest, PUBG barely needs any more success. Being the game that practically brought the battle royale genre to the people, it's certainly earned its successes over the years.

Although PUBG hasn't quite reached the soaring heights of Fortnite (and to be fair, it's unlikely that anything ever will), it's still made a name for itself as the premier title for those looking for a realistic BR experience. But now, it looks like a whole new way to play could be on the horizon.

The latest financial report from Krafton has revealed that there's plenty in store for PUBG fans in the coming year, as it looks like an entirely new game is on the way. We'd heard about this spin-off before, but now, we've got a hopeful release window.

PUBG is getting on the hype for extraction shooters, as it has officially revealed that a brand-new extraction spin-off is on the way. It comes in the shape of PUBG: Black Budget. Extraction games are all the rage these days, with even Call of Duty getting in on the hype with its divisive DMZ. 

This game was revealed alongside a new Subnautica game and the mysterious action-adventure game known as Project Gold Rush. We don't actually have any details about the PUBG extraction spin-off yet, apart from the fact that it's targeting a launch in the second half of 2024.

PUBG isn't the only team working on extraction shooters

Fans of the genre aren't missing out next year, as it has also been revealed that Bungie is working on a new extraction shooter, as the developer plans to reboot the Marathon series. Plus, the team behind The Finals is working on yet another game in the extraction realm, called Arc Raiders.

It's going to be a big year for fans of the extraction subgenre, and it's great news for fans of PUBG that the series is branching out a bit. Even though the battle royale game will likely stay a priority for fans, the potential here is limitless.
