PUBG Corp, the Bluehole-owned subsidiary that handles the hugely popular multiplayer games, has purchased New York-based service developer MadGlory for an undisclosed sum.
The company specialises in creating custom matchmaking engines, party communication systems, open game APIs and various esports and tournament tools. It has previously done so for studios such as Riot Games, Bethesda, Psyonix, Super Evil Megacorp and Warner Bros Games.
Now under the ownership of PUBG - and renamed PUBG MadGlory - the firm will build a suite of tools aimed at community developers. The intention is to enable users and even other developers to create their own applications for the game that "extend the in-game experience".
This will centre around a PUBG Developer Portal, which is due to launch on April 2nd. An early access program will give selected developers access to the PUBG API later this month.
"When you mix a uniquely talented studio with millions of passionate players you get something truly special," says MadGlory CEO and founder Brian Corrigan. "We are excited and humbled to join the ranks of the PUBG Corporation and we look forward to helping shape the future of PUBG!"
