In middle October, we reported that PUBG cheaters were having a bad day. Almost a month later, and said cheaters seems to have turned the table, with the developers now having the bad day.

In a new Steam post, the PlayerUnknown's Battleground developer team apologized to the community for the "inconvenience" caused by cheaters. They vowed to take new measures to ensure the playing field is level.

"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," explains the dev team. "Our development team is doing their best to detect and ban those who use cheats in a more proactive manner.

To put things in perspective - in the October article, PUBG watchdog BattlEye stated that they were "currently banning at a rate of 6K-13K per day." A quick look at their Twitter feed shows that they've banned "upwards to 42 000 within the last day." These are not the growth numbers we've been looking for.

What are the developers doing about the problem? Players can expect new anti-cheat systems to roll out. "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," continues the dev team. "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 will also continue to research the issue of hacking and cheating. The first new anti-cheat detection feature will roll out as soon as next week.
