Bluehole will ban at least 100K PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds cheaters

Bluehole Studios has announced that it will launch a massive ban wave for PC servers of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) after managing to crack down on at least 100,000 cheaters. The development team discovered a pattern the cheaters have been exploiting to cheat on the game.

As the team noted, any players that are caught in this wave will be permanently banned from the game.

Earlier this month, we claimed that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the best selling PC game of all time. From the looks of it, this battle-royale game will soon hit 30 million sold copies as it has so far sold 29 million copies.

It’s also worth noting that Bluehole has been supporting its title. Since its launch, the team has released four big updates for it. In the latest update that is available on the test servers, Bluehole introduced a new type of anti-cheat solution, which is still under development. This fourth patch also brings some improvements to the Miramar map and improved the Replay system.
