Greene announced that he will now be heading a new research team at PUBG Corp, called PUBG Special Projects, via his Twitter account. He has assumed the role of a consulting creative director and has handed off his responsibilities to Taeseok Jang, who is currently leading the development team.
In his tweet, he mentioned that the new PUBG Special Projects game research and development team will be based in Amsterdam instead of Seoul, which is the company’s head office.

The advancements this new team makes will eventually be added to PUBG, for the players to experience.
