This time PUBG creator, Brendan Greene, wants to make another gaming breakthrough as his new project called Artemis will be a metaverse game featuring NFTs.
In an interview with Nathan Brown for Hit Points, Greene said that the developers want to create a new digital place where players could have "a lot of meaningful things to do." He noted:
"But it doesn't matter if it's called the metaverse. I don't care what people want to call it."
Greene continued that Artemis will have its own in-game economy, where people could extract value from a digital place:
"[...] it has to be like the internet, where you can do stuff that will earn you money. But it's not about, like, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. It's some kid called AwesomePickle selling cool skins because he understands what people want."
It is expected that Artemis will be an Earth-sized virtual world where players could make and play "anything they want," Eurogamer reports. However, no release date has been revealed so far.
