Who Is Brendan Greene?
Brendan Greene was born on March 29, 1976, in Ballyshannon, Republic of Ireland. He is of Irish nationality and mixed ethnicity. While there is very little information available about his parents and childhood, it is a known fact that he was raised in an army camp in Curragh. There is also no information as to where he received his elementary or high school education; nevertheless, he holds a degree in Fine Art from the local College of Ireland.
After the completion of his college education, he worked as a DJ for a few years, playing at local parties and nightclubs before he decided to move to Sao Paulo, Brazil. Upon moving to Brazil, he decided to quit Djing and ventured into photography; with his degree in fine art one would think he had found his true purpose but Brendan wanted more, way more than photography could ever give him.
Burning with the desire to achieve the extraordinary, he began taking web design and coding classes in Sao Paulo. Shortly after mastering the art of web design and coding, he began applying the knowledge in figuring out how games like American Army, Delta Force: Black Hawk Down were coded. The game which eventually caught his attention the most was the military simulation game DayZ, which after several rounds of playing, he noticed the maps were so small and easy to recognize. In a bid to change this, he decided to code the game, making the map wider and more complex: he called his own version ArmA 2. That singular act turned his career from a wannabe, purpose seeker, to a famous video game designer.
Shortly after that, he was hired by Sony Online Entertainment as a consultant and helped work on many games such as H1Z1: King of the Hill and H1Z1: Just Survive, among others. His big break eventually came in 2017 following the release of his game PlayerUnknown’s Battleground on several gaming platforms even to the point of releasing the Android and iPhone versions of the game.

That being said, his net worth is estimated at a total of $200 million.
