BattleEye Has Banned 700K PUBGs Accounts

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has a major issue with cheaters. It is slowly becoming the next Counter Strike Global Offensive which is not something the community is willing to tolerate. However, PlayerUnknown has a better cheating system in place but it sure isn’t enough. Over the weekend, devs have banned 100,000 accounts from Battlegrounds on Steam.

The total number of banned players has now released 700,000, an astonishing number. However, the problem still goes on as more and more cheaters plague the game to this day.

After releasing new security updates last week, we banned almost 100,000 PUBG accounts this past weekend totaling over 700,000. That being said, fighting cheaters will always remain WIP and never be solved completely, especially in the most popular Battle Royale game.

PUBGs has sold 20 million copies which makes it that much harder for BattleEye to control the issue of cheating.  Posting on Twitter, creator Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene confirmed the new sales figure and acknowledged the frustration of players for having to face technical and other related issues on a regular basis.

PUBG has been maintaining more than 2 million concurrent players on Steam nearly every single day for the past four weeks. This another factor that makes it hard to manage cheating. The sheer number of players is overwhelming for a small studio.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is getting a new map as well as new weapons and features soon. The cheating issue needs to be controlled ahead of new content so players can enjoy the fresh new environment. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is now available on PC and is soon coming to Xbox One and Xbox One X as well.
