Hackers in PUBG has been a long-standing problem that the developer itself is trying to resolve by banning hackers, however, the situation seems a little out of dev’s control as the studio is unable to remove hackers from PUBG and this time a PUBG hacker demonstrated its skills in a live stream.
During a recent IGN live stream, a PUBG hacker demonstrated his hacking abilities blatantly. The PUBG hacker in question used an S12K shotgun with a 4x scope and shot players through the wall with incredible accuracy.
However, this hacking situation in PUBG might soon be controlled as Tencent has helped Chinese police to uncover 30 cases and arrest 120 people suspected of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds cheat development.
According to the report, these cheat developers used PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ leaderboards to advertise their cheats by using their QQ numbers instead of names so that players can contact them and acquire the cheat. The QQ chat service in China also belongs to Tencent.
Not only that PUBG Corp. is also looking to region lock the game to counter hackers in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
Creative director Brendan Greene revealed that the team is considering to implement a maximum ping to limit the player count in each region. However, he noted that it will take time as this method will require a lot of testing and the team will conduct tests in coming months.
Also, Tencent is working on games that are quite similar to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Tencent’s Europa is one of the games that Tencent is developing and quite frankly, this is the game what PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds should have been.
Furthermore, Tencent is also working on two different PUBG mobile games. Both of these mobile games will be developed using Unreal Engine 4 just like the PC version of the game and might not release outside of China.
The game is currently available on PC and Xbox One, the latter being in Xbox Preview, but the studio has plans to bring the game to PS4. According to PUBG Corp. CEO, they want to bring the game to PlayStation 4 but, Sony is not a fan of early access games.
Also, the game might never make it to PlayStation 4 as a rumor has been making rounds on the internet suggesting that Microsoft Cloud is looking to acquire PUBG.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a multiplayer shooter developed by PUBG Corp. for PC and Xbox One.
