5.4.2022 | The developer behind PUBG announced a partnership with blockchain company Solana Labs
Krafton, the studio behind PUBG, has announced a partnership with blockchain company Solana Labs. It says the deal will see the two companies cooperate on the development, operation, design, and marketing of “blockchain- and NFT-based games and services.”
Solana Labs develops the Solana blockchain, an Ethereum-competitor designed to offer fast transaction speeds at low cost. The South Korean studio hasn’t announced which of its titles might see the addition of blockchain functionality or whether it’ll be integrated into its flagship PUBG series.
The game’s PC title experienced a surge in popularity earlier this year after going free-to-play, while PUBG Mobile has been downloaded more than 1 billion times. A second free-to-play mobile PUBG game, PUBG: New State, was released last year.
