PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds currently hosts millions of players on PC. Like any online game, there are sure to be cheaters and hackers among the millions who play. Same is the case with our beloved Battlegrounds. While PlayerUnknown is taking action against cheaters, their reporting system needs some work.
Moreover, the creator of Battlegrounds considers hack developer misguided geniuses. Speaking in a recent interview, PlayerUnknown, Brendan Greene, stated that some of his good friends are hack creators. He went on to say that he has a lot of respect for people who write hacks and understands their motivation of finding holes in things.
Plenty of developers in the gaming world consider hack developers as the “scum” of the planet, he says. However, that is not the case with PlayerUnknown, clearly. Speaking about their mentality, Greene said:
I have a lot of respect for the guys who write the hacks. I know a lot of the people in the game industry think they’re scum. I really don’t think that. I’ve been lucky enough to call a few of them friends. You know they’re not necessarily bad people, all they want to do is just find holes in things. Like, as you’re growing up you wanted to take apart the radio to see how it works. That’s the kind of mentality they have
PlayerUnknown plans to support Battlegrounds for 10 years at least. During this time, hacking is something that needs to be addressed properly. The good news is that firm action is being taken against hackers despite the fact that Greene has a soft spot for hack code writers.
Battlegrounds is now available on PC, and will soon release on Xbox One X as well.
Do you agree with how Greene feels about hack developers?
