Is The Callisto Protocol connected to PUBG?

It doesn’t appear that The Callisto Protocol is connected to PUBG in any way, following on from Striking Distance Studios saying the game is no longer a part of the universe. Originally the game was announced to be a part of the universe back in 2020.

Throughout the game, there really isn’t a reference to the universe at all and it seems to be its own fully-fledged universe. We couldn’t even find a frying pan easter egg! The game has been built out into its own thing, as highlighted in our The Callisto Protocol review and any PUBG links probably wouldn’t work unless they were small references.

If any fun easter eggs or connections are found we will be sure to update this article with them.
