Wherever there’s talk of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds nowdays, there’s also complaints of cheaters. This is despite the fact that BattlEye revealed recently that they were banning as much as 13,000 cheaters everyday. Now, the devs have confirmed that they’re working actively to address the game’s biggest problem in a recent post on their Steam page.
“First of all, we would like to sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by the cheaters and we are sorry that you have not been able to enjoy PUBG in a safe and fair environment.”
After opening up by admitting their failure, they went on to confirm that additional anti-cheat measures have been rolled out in their latest update. “We will continue to permanently ban those who are using cheats. When unusual gameplay patterns are detected from an account, that account will be temporarily suspended and investigated.”
They also reassured players that they will be more aggressive in finding and banning cheaters, while “taking good care to not harm innocent players.”
Another patch “related to cheat detection” will be rolled out next week as well. In the meantime, the flame wars and blame games will have to continue on every online space talking about PUBG until Bluehole finds a way to bring cheating to a halt (if at all possible). That may be a long ways from now because of how resilient cheaters and cheat providers are. After all, selling crates is very lucrative.
All this just makes players think about the late December 1.0 release. Is PUBG really ready to go 1.0?
PUBG Corp.’s CEO has just announced the release date for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One and a few other details.
