PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds doesn't seem to lend itself to an animated screen adaptation, but it's happening anyway and Castlevania producer and showrunner Adi Shankar is working on it. Krafton announced this today, with Shankar in charge of creating and showcasing the animated project, which appears to have no network or streaming service connected yet.
In addition to Castlevania, Shankar is also working on Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix, based on Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. He has also been named in connection with the animated adaptations of Assassin's Creed, Devil May Cry and Hyper Light Drifter.
“As a player, I have been crushing competition in the Battlegrounds since PUBG was released in 2017,” Shankar said in a statement. "I am grateful to Krafton for the trust they have placed in me to execute my vision. As a filmmaker and I look forward to embarking on this journey together. For me, this animated project represents a further step in the evolution of the repairing the lit bridge between the gaming industry and Hollywood. I want to reveal to everyone what it's like to win a chicken dinner. "
As for other details, for now, that’s all. Krafton CEO CH Kim says "we look forward to sharing more about this lively project in the near future."
It’s not so uncommon for PUBG to get the animated television treatment, because it’s very popular right now. The Wizard is receiving an anime, Legend of Mana is receiving an anime, Resident Evil I just got an anime, Tomb Raider is receiving an anime, Shenmue is receiving an anime, Splinter Cell could get an anime, Dogma of the dragon I have an anime, Dota I have an anime … and that's not all. Everyone's been crazy about anime. And for good reason, I guess.
