Play nice, boys and girls...
PUBG’s PUBG Corp. has confirmed that 15 hackers have been arrested in China as part of ongoing efforts to curb in-game cheating.
Charges against the 15 individuals include “developing and selling hacking/cheating programs that affect PUBG,” PUBG Corp. recently confirmed.
“The longstanding rumor that hacking/cheating programs extract information from users’ PCs has been confirmed to be true,” PUBG Corp. continued. “Using illegal programs not only disrupts others, but can end up with you handing over your personal information. We’ll continue to crack down on hacking/cheating programs (and their creators) until our players are free to battle it out in a totally fair environment.”
PUBG Corp has “upgraded our security measures, improved our anti-cheat solutions, and recently even added a new anti-cheat solution on top of all that,” PUBG Corp. added. The developer has been “continuously gathering information on hack developers (and sellers) and have been working extensively with multiple partners and judicial authorities to bring these people to justice.”
In short, don’t cheat.
PUBG is available now on Windows PC and Xbox One.
