It’s only natural for a game such as PUBG to eventually have a cheating problem. With a massive surge in popularity in 2017, PUBG now has the record for most co-current people playing the game in history, with 3 million people on the 29th of December, 2017.
With no region locking in place, it was only a matter of time before cheaters proved a problem.
PC players, we've deployed a build on our test servers to test the potential changes to the blue zone balance. Please read our dev blog to learn more about this, as well as about our newest anti-cheat efforts: https://t.co/JZwn8JZofe

Analysing millions of players data, which we assume has been logged on the server backend, has revealed patterns of behavior which match cheaters. Using this new ‘big data’ analysis, Bluehole announced they will ban 100,000 accounts based on this data.
We expect this to happen in the next few days.
