Callisto Protocol is no longer a PUBG spin
Striking Distance Studios founder and CEO Glen Schofield has confirmed that the Callisto Protocol will no longer be connected to the world of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. While the game is set 300 years in the future and is charting its own narrative path, Schofield explained that the upcoming survival horror title has now severed all apparent connections with PUBG.
“It was originally part of the PUBG timeline, but has evolved into its own world” Schofield said on Twitter. “PUBG is awesome, [and] We still have a little surprise for our fans, but [The Callisto Protocol] is its own world, story, and universe. “
FYI @CallistoTheGame its own story and world. It no longer takes place in the PUBG Universe. It was originally part of the PUBG timeline, but has since evolved into its own world. PUBG is great and we still have little surprises for our fans, but TCP is its own world, story, and universe.

Earlier this week, Schofield mentioned that “several touch points” and easter eggs have been integrated into the game to create a link to PUBG. More details revealed by Schofield and his studio includes more details about the grotesque Biophage monsters you’ll encounter as you work to escape the prison complex on Jupiter’s moon Callisto and how Schofield’s work on Dead Space inspired for the direction of this new sci-fi survival horror game.
Callisto protocol – the goal is “the scariest game on PC and console”– is still scheduled for release this year. A remake of Dead Space will be out in January 2023 in case you can’t get enough terror space.
