San Ramon’s Bishop Ranch corporate community just got a little bit bigger this summer, with the announcement that video game developer Striking Distance Studios has leased 25,000 square feet for its new headquarters.

Striking Distance Studios is an independent, wholly owned subsidiary of PUBG Corp. -- which is known for the development of the popular online game “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” -- and will be moving to Bishop Ranch to proceed with its work starting in February 2020.

“We consider ourselves as forward-thinking creatives and are excited to bring our state-of-the-art game studio to Bishop Ranch,” said Glen Schofield, CEO of Striking Distance Studios. “Bishop Ranch and the East Bay are able to deliver the best-in-class environment that attracts amazing talent. Planting roots here was a no brainer.”

Schofield is the co-founder of Sledgehammer Games and known for the development of AAA video game titles, such as “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3,” “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” and “Call of Duty: WWII.”

Bishop Ranch officials say Striking Distance Studios will be neighbors to companies such as Berkshire Hathaway and Cooper Companies. Financial terms of the lease have not been released to the public.

“My client’s goal for their HQ was to locate the ideal space to create a state-of-the-art game studio, offering unparalleled amenities and central location in the SF Bay Area,” said Madeline Serafin, president of Realmark, who brokered the deal.

“We’re always looking for unique and forward thinking companies like PUBG Corporation and its new Striking Distance game studio to join our community at Bishop Ranch,” said Alexander Mehran, Jr., president and chief operating officer of Sunset Development Company, owner of Bishop Ranch. “We look forward to watching the company thrive and create, and we take great pride in providing customers with innovative and complete solutions in a modern workplace.”
