Unknown Worlds Studios was recently purchased by Krafton. Subnautica and Subnautica: Below Zero were both created by the studio. Krafton is best known for his work on PUBG and The Callisto Protocol, which is set to release later this year.
In a statement, Krafton’s CEO wrote, “Unknown Worlds are incredibly experienced and passionate developers with an unparalleled gift for creativity and a proven track record of building successful player-driven worlds.” “Krafton is going to go to great lengths to assist them. They not only help us grow, but they also share the goal of creating unique experiences for a worldwide audience.”
As long as Krafton is in charge, Unknown Worlds will continue to operate on its own. Updates for both Subnautica and Subnautica: Below Zero will continue. Furthermore, Unknown Worlds is currently working on a new project, which will be released in Early Access in early 2022.
