PlayerUnknown’s Battleground has broken a ton of records on its journey to become the most played game on PC. Unfortunately, the bigger a game gets, the more cheaters make their way to the game. With PUBG players becoming more frustrated, the dev team behind the game has released a statement on cheaters.
“As part of our efforts to foster a safe & fair in-game environment, we are deploying new measures to combat cheaters,” the team wrote on Twitter. “We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by the cheaters and promise to take stronger actions against them going forward.”
Another lengthier post from the developer, housed on Steam, addressed the issue as well. In this post, the dev team apologized for the rampant cheating, said they were doing everything possible to combat it, and noted that the problem will not be resolved quickly.
“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. Our development team is doing their best to detect and ban those who use cheats in a more proactive manner. We are aware that we still have much to do. We will use all available resources to combat cheaters and foster a safe and fair in-game environment. We will also continue to take actions against those who develop and distribute cheats.
“As we announced before, we are in the process of adopting new tools to detect and verify users with unusual gameplay patterns and today, we will be rolling out additional measures. 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.
“Although we hope to bring about a safe and fair environment in PUBG as soon as possible, our battle against cheaters will not end overnight. We will continue our research and development to establish a better system for combatting cheaters. We will take stronger actions to find and ban cheaters, while at the same time taking good care to not harm innocent players. Next week, we will be deploying yet another patch related to cheat detection.”
If you’re a PUBG player, the developers addressing the issue might help with your frustrations.
