He then joined the South Korean game development company, ‘Bluehole’ as creative director. The people at ‘Bluehole’ were impressed by Greene’s idea of developing a battle royale game.

In 2016, the work on the famous battle royale game ‘PUBG’ was started. It took almost a year for the development of the hit battle royale genre and it was finally released on March 23, 2017.
